It's a sad fact of life that when we move away, we still bring ourselves along! I applaud you for making a move for the positive, but it may take a while for things to fall into place. Try not to think too far a head. As Kitt would say "stay in the moment" and "no stinkin thinkin!"
Your workmates will hopefully get over asking you about the issue of being attacked in the bathroom. Just smile, say "I'm fine, how are you?" and most likely they will get distracted and start talking about themselves instead.
I don't know what to say about your father, that must be hard. My father basically disowned me when I was seventeen and chose to study prof writing instead of Law. He never liked me as a child and made that clear by telling me I was an accident and I wasn't wanted. Trust me, it's not our fault..some people just are not meant to be parents. I sometimes run into my father and we just say Hi, and move on.
I hope your day improves. Know that we care about you and are here to listen,
