Secrets of being a birthmother

In the past few days I have really given alot of thought to the meausres I have taken to keep the birth and adoption of my son a "sercret".
The one thing that really stuck out for me was I actually have 2 Facebook accounts. I have one for all of my friends in the adoption community and another for my general friends, family and my son's family.
I wish I could combin the two but so many things are private and I don't feel comfortable sharing all of my thoughts etc. on the journey I have been on the past 4 years.
Does anyone else go to the measures I have to protect my privacy?

  1. I'm secretly a birthmom in my town. Only my family (who I live with) knows about H. Sometimes I feel like I am living a double life. Where I went through my pregnancy they of course know, but that is miles away from where I am now. I have this blogger site, because I don't have a therapist yet, who I would be able to talk to about H. I usually just text with my friends who know about H. I thought of a facebook but didn't want to put pictures on where someone could happen upon them.
    All in all, living with a secret as big as our is hard. Everyone still stares at me strangely as if they know I have something to hide. That may also be my mind playing tricks on me. But I wish you the best of luck!
