I read that if they don't tell anyone about their diet, the self satisfaction becomes too much to contain and they die.

I lost my best friend to closeted veganism.
She was on a first date- a standard first date, with a young man that seemed perfectly respectable. My friend was nervous, oh so nervous that she was quivering thinking that he might ask her if she wanted to get a bite to eat afterwards. She was a vegan, and didn't want to let him know that she was a vegan until the time was right. But alas, she forgot the ten-minute rule.
So the young gent came to retrieve her. They left her house at about 7:15 and were having a grand old time driving into a concert in the city until they were nearing the stop light before the venue and the clock ticked to 7:23. It was now or never. She had to say something or she would explode.
The two of them heard the clock's lights shift. They gaped in tandem at the red lines that flashed across the screen, not caring that the traffic light had turned green and cars were honking as they passed by. Her mouth opened to tell him the truth, when-
"I'M SORRY," the young man shouted, just before the clock struck once more. "I'M VEGAN! I'M VEGAN!"
"WHAT?" My friend replied.
I haven't seen her since that night, when I left her house after helping her get ready to see the boy. I miss her every day of my life. Now I keep up with the young man that was with her in her final moments, making sure that he knows how much he meant to her and how much she would have wanted him to go on being proud of his veganism, sharing it with the world and being proud of who he is. It's a true Romeo and Juliet story, it is- the "Soy-Crossed Lovers," we call them today.4
