Customer Question

I am scared of being a pedophile. I am 15 & when i was around 11, i touched my little cousin who was around 4 or 5 in the genital parts. I eventually got caught and my whole family didnt trust me at those times. I even tried to take pictures of my little sister changing in her room. I feel so ashamed... And i thought, if i was really a pedo, i will try to kill myself. I feel so scared and i dont want to be a horrible human being thinking little children are attractiveml. Thats just plain wrong and horrid in my mind... Please help...?
