Therapist recommended this app to me but it doesn't even work. There's no way to save any data on your own triggers. Like it will say "add a new___" (ie trigger) with a box to type in, but it doesn't save and doesn't let you hit next. Same with going thru and trying to report stuff, boxes are there to type but it doesn't save. Totally worthless and useless app. Esp since this actually got funded to get made. Wow. Also I'm autistic so the way my anger starts is different

Just getting started... When you start and are angry, you will tend to pick apart every detail, criticize, and judge the instruction and aide offered. Obviously this app is not meant as a complete replacement for professional help, but it seems to be good for logging incidents and providing the tools a professional would recommend, for free, at your fingertips. Combined with the online course provided for free by the VA and possibly a therapist, I think this a good tool.

Thanks for the effort but without the option to edit, delete, skip parts, etc. I was left far more angry than when I went in trying to calm down. You really need to make it more user friendly. I should be allowed to edit or delete whatever I want or omit anything I wish. Way too rigid and elementary.
