    Only one EP member knows my real name. He knows it - and he's the only one who I have trusted with this information. He knows it because he's trusted me with his. He has written to me under my real name and I haven't had a free second to do the same, but I will as soon as I have...

    But I think I've only shared it with one person.  I don't see the point in sharing my name I am still the same person.

    They know my story, but I'd be a total fool to let them all know my name. There's always that ONE total A-hole out there, willing to destroy what you have worked a lifetime to earn... No sense giving him/her the ammo they need to do it.

    I'm fairly certain, not a single friend on EP knows my real name. It is a unique name unlike Sarah or Brittany, so I can't tell just anybody. I am one of only maybe 7 people in this country who wears the name. I wouldn't want somebody stalking me.S
