What’s Bearable helping you to achieve? I needed a way to track what traits and symptoms I had when I started to struggle more with my mental health.
What impact has this had on your health and/or well-being? It helps me to understand more about my body because my autism sometimes doesn’t allow me to access my interoception skills and understand what’s going on inside me. It also helps me do chain analysis style thinking for my hallucinations on a bad day compared to a good day.
What are the main reasons you’d recommend Bearable to somebody? I would recommend Bearable to anyone and I do. It’s customisable enough (even in the free version) that it will relate to most people. I love love love weekly summaries and the chance to do the experiment. It’s also really valuable to be able to add the significant events.
Is there anything else you’d like to share? This type of data is invaluable and filling it out only takes a minute or two at the end of the day. I find it really helpful to have a reminder to fill it out and I position a shortcut of the app on my main home screen on my phone.
