Helping to break the "emotional storm" of autism, and making life easier.

Favorite app *****

"I use this app regularly to communicate to others how I'm feeling without needing to get into an involved conversation. 

I am autistic and emotions are difficult for me to articulate in the moment. This app helps me change "I'm angry" to "actually, I'm more frustrated and worried." 

The granularity of emotion definition helps me identify and label the different emotions experienced in a moment rather than just being overwhelmed and shutting down. 

This also helps me understand and choose the correct steps to resolve the problem (in the case of negative emotions) or identify behavior to continue (for positive emotions.) 

I love using the cards with the emoticons. I would like it if all the emotions were available in card format even without an associated emoticon. That would make it possible to show exactly what I feel. 

I like how the cards are color-coded, too. 

It's easy to say "I am having too many green emotions" or "today is an orange day." 

It's a lot easier for me to have a conversation about solutions to what is bothering me when I am able to break the emotional storm into its individual parts and understand how they are working together. 

These cards in this app make my life easier."
