About Myabetic – by Kyrra Richards, Founder
I was 24 when I was diagnosed with diabetes. The daily physical frustrations were difficult, but the emotional struggle was even more severe. I hid my black standard-issue supply case and didn’t manage my blood sugar regularly because I lacked the confidence to expose my diabetes. I was scared of negative perceptions and wanted to feel normal.
I needed a change. My insecurity was dangerous to my health. I created Myabetic to create an image I could be proud of. The typical representation of diabetes felt wrong and unfair. Diabetes is hard work, and we deserve to be recognized for our strength. Designed to improve the diabetes lifestyle, Myabetic products represent the beauty of our community. Together, we can define a new image, controlling our health with personal style.
After diagnosis, I feared that diabetes would stop me from living the life I desired. But despite the frustrating finger pricks, carb counting confusion, infinite insulin injections, endless pharmacy trips and stressful doctor appointments, I’m able to achieve and appreciate life’s milestones.
For everyone who lives with diabetes (or loves someone with diabetes), we are here for you. Through highs and lows, we are in your corner. At Myabetic, we are dedicated to improving the diabetes lifestyle so you can proudly live the life of your dreams.
