My name is Ely Fornoville

ElyI have lived with type 1 diabetes since March of 1996.

Living with diabetes didn’t make my life easier but it did open a new world and created new friendships. I always tried to do something back for the diabetes community. Creating this website is a first step towards that goal.

I focus on interviewing people with diabetes and sharing their stories online. I came to the conclusion I wasn’t the only one with certain problems or feelings that go hand in hand with the life of a diabetic. I wanted to share these stories online to help others.

Focussing on others showed me how people around the world live with diabetes.

I bring an honest and open account of my own life with diabetes but also the lives of others. I work hard to stay involved and give as much as I can back to the community that empowers and inspires me.

I’d love to hear from you, whether near or far. Send me a message anytime, or reach out via Twitter or LinkedIn. If you have any questions you can always check the FAQ.

Thank you! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your story.
