Hi, I have been collecting data for quite a time, I have downloaded and purchased a lot of apps but decided about rTracker, I unfortunately keep changing the trackers due to my ADHD, I wasnt able to decide about one tracker, I always want to make a new one, a better one
Now I want to be able to correlate the medications I take on demand and alcohol, how they change my mood.
The parameters I am tracking are the ones that makes me either up or down such as “work, wife, x-wife, personal finance, my colleagues, my hobbies etc.”
lets make an example
Work -3, -2, 0, 1, 2, 3
Wife -3, -2, 0, 1, 2, 3
x-Wife -3, -2, 0, 1, 2, 3
once I evaluate them, -3 is “it makes me feel very bad, 0 neutral 3 it makes me feel good”
So on the top of the tracker, I want to ask 3 questions
Xanax (makes me relax)
Ritalin (in the beginning it makes me happy for max 20 minutes, and then kinda makes me anxious)
Alcohol (depending on how much I take, I usually drink 2-3 nights a week, and I feel positive when I have alcohol)
it wouldnt be difficult to correlate xanax, ritalin and alcohol if I would evaluate them as 1 or 0, but each of them has different effects on their half-life stages.
xanax 8 hrs half-life but after 4 hours it makes me sleepy
ritalin 4 hours of half-life first 20 minutes a lot of dopamine, and then it kinda turns into anxiety if I am idle
Alcohol, hard to say.
is it possible to correlate the items above with considering the half lifes?
Or lets say I have multiple choices for xanax etc.
xanax Stage1 - Stage2 - Stage3 - just ended
ritalin Stage1 - Stage2 - Stage3 - just ended
4 stages for each
I dont know how I would correlate them, I use Tableau but I am not good at it,
your comments are appreciated.
(the reason I try to correlate is; due to ADHD my mood changes very very quickly and those parameters are the ones that quickly changes my mood even in 10 minutes, I want to understand, I also will have annotations on changes (that could be done on rTracker)
I havent created the tracker yet, I will create tonight and start tracking, since they change very quickly, I should be able to provide a small set of data as csv to those who can test and help me.
