I saty very much time to try to forget about it and after some times I succeeded to sleep .
This day i feel very bad to and i don't know what to do .

Why i feel very bad ?
Tell to somebody ?

Please don't say that gay are normal person etc...because i know but it's simply i don't want to be one .

Answer
You need to talk with a professional therapist about this.  I am not a liscensed therapist - I am a professor and researcher.   Just because you had this experience does NOT mean that you are gay.  You need to talk with a therapist and explore all the feelings about the experience to figure out what it means, and to reduce your anxiety and worry.

Please find a professional therapist.
