    I Don't Let People See The Real Me

    False.  I don't have anything to hide, therefore I am what I am and people can see me and nothing else then the real me.  You like, good, you don't, that's your problem.

    I don't let my friends know what is really

    going on with me because it would only make them worry. I don't want to be an object of pity just because I'm struggling. I don't want people to treat me like I'm broken.

    My Protective Armor

    I will never let anyone get close enough to see and know the real me underneath my invisible "protective armor". I guess my current personality, the ME that people see and interact with in person is just a cover up for the REAL ME that lurks beneath the surface. I just can't take...

    Actually,

    you guys see more of me than I show in the physical world.  My husband and son are the only two people in my life who know the sides of me I hide in front of everyone else.  It's for the best really; I would have been locked up long ago if the world really understood...
