I recall my English teacher once told me that the correct form to use when answering a question
like this is:
Who is it?
It is I.
But "me" is so widely used, it's accepted as correct.

A. her with whom you share your secrets, not me
B. her with whom you share your secrets, not I.
C. she with whom you share your secrets, not me.
D. she with whom you share your secrets, not I.
E. her with who you share your secrets, not me.

Explanation:

After the different forms of the verb to be, we use subject forms of pronouns, except after the infinitive where we use the object form.
