18th Anniversary + Myabetic James Compact Case Review

Well, I’ve reached another September 17th. This year, in 1999, was just after my T1D mom turned 40 and had a 4-year-old child who wouldn’t stop trying to drink her bath water. While I don’t particularly focus on, or celebrate, this anniversary, I do treat each September 17th as a day to renew my strength, knowing I’ve worked hard to care for myself for another year with T1D. + knock-on-wood, no complications.

I want to take this anniversary to focus on something great– Myabetic cases!

As you know, I’ve reviewed the Cherise bag in the past– which is perfect for a day on the go and check out the post for a coupon code! When I reached out to the team at Myabetic in need of a little case to combine my meter and my syringes/vials for my work bag/smaller purses, I found myself anxiously awaiting a delivery of the James compact case, in quilted black gloss.

A word from the *now* wise– be careful when opening the box with scissors! It’s tightly packed in there!

Anyhow, I immediately loaded this baby up with my meter, strips, 2 vials of insulin, syringes, clicker, and alcohol wipes– outer pockets got a spare battery and spare lancets in one, room for my cash/odds and ends in the other {if I don’t need my full wallet}!

It arrived just in time for a quick overnight trip for work, so this beauty flew the skies + was whipped out for that morning long-acting in the airport bathroom. No one blinked when I took it out — as a matter of fact, one woman said– “I love your bag!”– little did she know what I had tucked inside!

I love my Myabetic bags more and more every day. Next on my list? The new Brandy backpack!

Here’s to another year with T1D– with all the highs and lows, literally and emotionally, but little glimmers of light and hope with things like beautiful supply cases that don’t feel so medical.

Take it easy but take it,
