What’s Bearable helping you to achieve?
Keeping track of those symptoms that are more infrequent or not daily. It’s also very helpful to keep track of depression because mine seems to be cyclical.

What impact has this had on your health and/or well-being?
Notice patterns of why certain symptoms arise.

What are the main reasons you’d recommend Bearable to somebody?
I have recommended this app to many of my friends who also struggle with chronic illness.

What else would you like to tell people about Bearable?
I meet with a Lyme disease treatment specialist every 6 weeks, and she treats me based off of my symptoms, diet, exercise, sleep, mood, etc for the last 6 weeks. Sometimes when she asks me a question, I don’t recall exactly and have to give a vague answer. With this app, I can review my last 6 weeks so much better and easier.
