Why we should stop judging each other on our appearance

Appearance is everything right? 

Who can honestly say we don’t judge someone on the way they look, it’s natural for us all to judge someone on first impression which usually boils down to their appearance. 

I’m definitely guilty of this…

We shouldn’t ever do this, to you I look perfectly healthy, I look overweight, I don’t look unwell. 

I suffer from a form of Inflammatory bowel disease called Ulcerative Colitis, this affects the inner lining of the colon, (large intestine). It can lead to other issues such as joint pain, fatigue,skin problems… the list goes on. 

Inflammatory bowel disease is an invisible illness along with Rheumatoid Arthritis,Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain,Depression and Mental Illness – these are just a few of a ever growing list. 

Invisible illness are well… just that.. Invisible. 

Look at me….. How do I look to you?


I don’t look like I’m suffering from a chronic illness do I? 

It’s hard not to judge someone on their appearance as sometimes that’s the only thing you can do, especially if you don’t have the chance to talk to them. 

We must stop pre judging one another on the way we look.

 To you I look perfectly healthy, when in reality I’m constantly in pain…. pain I can’t even describe. 

You don’t see those bad days, the days where I can’t leave the house due to being glued to the toilet. Those days where I can’t get out of bed due to the pain.
