'I shouldn't have to explain myself when I go to the bathroom'

Sam Cleasby has ulcerative colitis but no visible signs of disability, and is fed up with being judged for using accessible toilets.

After receiving a dismissive tut from a stranger, she blogged about the issue and received a lot of support online.

She describes these experiences as "really embarrassing" and says they cause "quite a lot of anxiety".

She is asking people to be "a little bit less judgmental".
