My friends I have told me that I am "as secretive as the CIA". I have a hard time trusting people & tend to be incredibly private.  Some of my friends have gotten fed up with me because I won't instantly spill my guts to them.  I still don't think there is anyone in my life who knows everything about me-- not even my therapist. 

I have struggled with depression/mental illness/ self-injury for several years & I think that has a big influence on my being secretive.

Would love to hear others' stories, to know I am not alone.

You came to the right place - just look at people's stories - there are a lot of people that have similar problems.
