Tiles make me shudder
I’ve always hated white tiles, especially the type you see in old-fashioned hospitals or public toilets! I can’t stand pubs that have tiles on the outside of the building. Even modern bathrooms that have all-white tiling make me shudder. Emma, 42, Glossop, Derbyshire
In 1942, you were a Jewish girl called Petra, aged 14, who was taken to Treblinka extermination camp. Here the killing rooms were disguised as shower rooms, complete with white tiles, hence your fear of their secret purpose. You should be regressed to have this trauma healed, but make sure your therapist allows you to see it as if you were watching a film, or it’ll be too upsetting.
