Scale on mood tracker needs another option

I am finding the mood tracker useful for managing my bioplar.  I have used a similar tracker (on paper) except this one was on a scale of -5 (very depressed/suicidal) to + 5 (mania).  The problem I have with Medhelps tracker is it is judgemental and suggests that the top mood is excellent, which would be hypomania/mania for most bipolar people.

Thanks,
T

I've been thinking about that one a bit... I felt like something wasn't right with it, but i couldn't put my finger on it... I have to agree with it.

Thanks for the suggestion. If we were to add a Manic option above Excellent and a Depressed option below Horrible, do you think that would work? We'd be happy to do so if this would help.

Thanks,
