I Can't Stand Public Bathrooms, Can You Guess Why?

I was sexually abused at around the age of 5 or 6 by a man in public bathrooms. It's been over 12 years, and I hate public bathrooms, always making up excuses to why I don't like them, and to why I don't use them. I recently told a friend, as he had been through a similar situation, it feels so good to know I'm not alone and that there is someone I can trust with this. He is the only person I have ever told.

Only realised I had been sexually abused a few years ago. It has truly changed me though. I can barely remember it, I wish there was a way to remove the last of these memories.

He will truly be one of my closest friends for life though, you could call us brothers.
