The story of Ste Walker's painful disease is a tragic tale. It all began in 2012, when he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, that dragged his healthy life down to a patient's, who can only look healthy.
Every day is a challenge for him, and his story will change the way you look at others and judge them.
Crohn's Disease is a chronic intestinal disease, which can cause inflammation of the entire digestive system.
In his fight against the disease, Ste has been operated for over 80 times in the last two years, during which the inflamed intestine was removed metre by metre.
The sadder part of his story is that his sufferings extend from just being physical, to even being social. People keep judging him by his 'healthy' looks and comment on him for using a disability card. Ste has to justify continually to these people, and this is truly disturbing.
Ste has recently posted online photos of him that show both sides - the one he lives every day, and the side that other people see. His long and emotional post describing his daily fight can be a lesson for all.
