"This app is a life changer! You can track everything and the app shows you the correlations. I use this app for tracking symptoms and factors for my depression to see, which correlate with my disease and my side effects from my medication. I wish I would have discovered this app earlier. I found nothing comparable." - R
“Bearable has literally been a life changer! I am diagnosed with multiple mental health disorders (GAD with panic attacks, ADHD, insomnia, social anxiety, bipolar disorder and depression to name a few 🥴). I love that I'm able to see exactly the impact my daily life has on my mood and sleep patterns. I have been able to adjust my life to better serve my mental health.” - Kayla
“Before using Bearable I felt like I was being tossed in the waves of my anxiety and depression! I was unsure if I was improving or regressing, and I didn't know what factors were causing the changes in my mood and energy levels. I just felt lost. Bearable helps me stay focused on my daily goals while also giving me the big picture. Bearable has helped me chart a course for smooth sailing.” - Camille
“I love this app! I use it to keep track of my medication but also really helps me track my depression and anxiety. It shows me my progress and makes me really happy. I'm always recommending it to others and I just shared it with my therapist so she can pass it on as well. Super helpful!! Thank you 💙💙” - Chel
“I was diagnosed with chronic depression a few months ago. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of how I'm feeling and how often I feel a certain way. This app helps me keep track of so much as well as reminds me to be grateful for the little things. I highly recommend it if you are dealing with depression and anxiety!” - Jem

Bearable Depression Tracker User Story

"Bearable led me to a diagnosis that changed my life."

Bria, Bearable member

“I downloaded Bearable in 2021 because I knew I was struggling with mental health issues but I was unable to keep track of how I was feeling. If I booked an appointment with a professional when I was feeling low, by the time the appointment came (whether it was the next week or even only hours later) I was unable to recall the symptoms I was experiencing.

I had no idea my mood shifted so rapidly, and that I was experiencing so much memory loss. Once I was logging this (thanks to the regular bearable prompts) I was shocked. I took it to my psychiatrist and shortly after received a BPD, PTSD and surprisingly an ADHD diagnosis!

Since getting a diagnosis I’ve been able to access resources that give me real help that I didn’t have before. I never could have gotten a diagnosis without Bearable helping me log my symptoms, because I would always present fine in front of my medical team and was unable to recall or articulate what was happening for me.”

Created by people with physical and mental health conditions.

James, founder & CEO

Having suffered with a chronic illness since 2018, I know all too well the frustration of coming out of an appointment with my doctor or therapist knowing that I hadn’t been able to give them a complete picture of my migraine symptoms.

Often these interactions lead to no diagnosis, a very tentative diagnosis, or at worst, a misdiagnosis. From personal experience, this sets you off a wild goose chase. You go from consultant to consultant in search of answers and spend hours on Dr. Google.

In the end, I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I started tracking my mood, symptoms and other daily factors, in the hope that it would help me to understand, and feel more in control of, my health. This is how the idea for the Bearable app was born. 

Since 2020, Bearable has helped me to better understand and manage my symptoms as well has help me to improve how I communicate with my medical team.

Today, my mission is to give all patients the power to take control of their health and feel like themselves again.

FAQ

Yes, Bearable is a freemium app and our subscription is optional.

With Bearable, you can track unlimited symptoms, treatments, medications, and triggers for free. You can also identify changes in your depression symptoms using weekly reports, timelines, calendars, and charts – all included in the free version of the Bearable app.

Bearable was designed so that people whose disposable income is affected by their depression can still track and manage their health using the app for free. In fact, we’ve recently launched a sponsorship program that gifts free subscriptions to members of the Bearable community every month.

When you first sign-in to Bearable, you’ll be asked to pick the factors that you feel are most effecting your depression symptoms. Then, over the course of the following week – and along with your symptom severity – you’ll track the days when these factors occur.

Once you’ve collected approximately 7 days of symptoms and factor data, we’ll show you correlations between your factors and changes in symptom severity.

Then, once you’ve collected more data – we recommend at least 30 days – you’ll be able to determine which factors might be negatively impacting your depression symptoms. At this point, most Bearable users then use this data to:

    1. Speak with a Doctor about any new triggers they’ve identified.
    2. Begin making lifestyle changes to avoid newly identified triggers.

It’s also possible to create more granular, custom factors and these can help you to get a more detailed understanding of your triggers. For example, rather than tracking ‘Socialised’ you might begin to track ‘Chad’, ‘Karen’, and ‘Mom’.

Ultimately, Bearable gives you the tools to collect data about your triggers, so that you can better understand and manage your symptoms over time.

Many members of the Bearable community have told us that their main aim is to simply track symptoms over time. The main reasons for this are:

    1. It makes it easier spot early warning signs for symptom flare ups.
    2. It helps to give them perspective on the frequency and severity of their symptoms.
    3. The act of logging symptoms gives them a sense of control.
    4. It helps them to stay accountable for managing their symptoms.
    5. It helps them to identify possible triggers and effective treatments

Yes, one of the primary reasons we created Bearable was to make communication with your Doctor, Therapist, and Medical team easier.

Whilst it’s possible to export all of your data in .csv format, we’ve also heard from members of the Bearable community that they:

    1. Use the share button on certain reports to send doctors a specific report e.g. to share correlations from the Effect on Fatigue report.
    2. Screen grab  reports that don’t currently have a share button e.g. to share symptom trends from the Comparison graph or Timeline screen.
    3. Simply use the app during an appointment to answer questions on the spot. For example, by using the Timeline & Calendar screens to quickly lookup symptom frequency and severity for specific dates.

There are a number of different ways to use Bearable and each of them can help you to manage your symptoms in different ways.

    1. By helping you to identify triggers, Bearable can help you to make lifestyle choices and changes to avoid or reduce exposure to these triggers.

    2. Bearable can help you to identify early warning signs of a symptom flare up, so that you’re able to adjust your plans before your symptoms become more severe.

    3. Bearable helps you to collect detailed symptom data for you to share with your medical team and this can aid with obtaining a diagnosis or treatment.

    4. By helping you to understand the positive and negative effects of treatments, self-management, and/or medications on your symptoms. Bearable can help you to make better decisions about how you manage your disease or condition.

    5. Bearable’s Reminders, Goals, and Other Factor features can help you to stay accountable for healthy habits, self-management, and medication adherence.

    1. GDPR Compliance. As a British company we’re compliant with EU data protection laws which are more protective of an individuals data rights than HIPAA. This also means that we do not have to comply with requests for data from US law enforcement.

    4. We will never sell your data and this has been our philosophy since day one. Whilst other companies focus on revenue, our primary focus is to help people to understand and manage their health.

    5. We collect as little Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as possible. The only information needed to create a Bearable account is your email address. That means no name, no home address, no credit card information, no biometrics, no birthdate, and nothing else that could be used to personally identify you directly or indirectly.

What we’ve been told by our community of thousands of people with multiple chronic illnesses and hard-to-diagnose-conditions, is that Bearable is better than other chronic illness symptom tracker apps because:

    1. The app is made by people with chronic conditions for people with chronic conditions. Bearable started as an idea on Reddit – by our founder and CEO who lives with chronic migraines – and was shaped by the feedback of chronic illness communities such as r/chronicillness, r/fibromyalgia, r/endo, r/migraine, r/longcovid, r/anxiety, r/bipolar, r/bpd, r/ptsd and many more. Bearable is still recommended by these communities today and we continue to work with them for feedback on features and updates to the app.

    2. Bearable is more customisable than other chronic illness symptom tracker apps. Our approach has always been to let people dictate what and how they track their health and the factors impacting their health. Rather than taking a prescriptive approach, Bearable let’s you track and manage your health however you’d like.

    3. Bearable has a simple interface that makes tracking symptoms, treatments, and medication very quick, easy, and rewarding. Everything appears on a single screen that can be customised as much or as little as you’d like.

    4. Most of the features can be used for free and we don’t show ads or sell any data. If you read reviews of the Bearable App, you’ll notice that people often mention how much they were able to achieve for free. Our mission has always been and will always be to help as many people with chronic illnesses as possible and that’s why we do everything we can to protect user data and offer tools for free (we even offer free subscriptions through the Bearable Heroes program).

    5. Bearable is backed by scientific review, recommended by Doctors and Therapists including; Psychiatrist Dr. Anthony Levinson, GP Dr Claire Ashley, and also recommended by The US Pain Foundation, and a number of leading health publications including SELF Magazine, Healthline, and WebMD.

You can read more about how Bearable compares to other leading Symptom and Mood trackers (like Careclinic and Daylio) and reviews of the app from people with BPD, ADHD, and Bipolar Disorder on our blog and user stories pages.
