Bonjour J, Well, I'm not sure that anyone would ever say "I am you" but yes, the first person singular conjugations for être and suivre are the same: Je suis.
My wife has a great story about learning French in high-school. They were given random slips of paper and told to tell a story. Her's was, "I am a tree." [Je suis un arbre.] She started in with, "I followed a tree to school. Where it was going I do not know." [Je suis un arbre...] She relates that her teacher looked confused, had the lightbulb go off, took off her glasses and laughed for five minutes.
Laura, True, one may not say "I am you", but one would say "I follow Jesus Christ". Would the same sentence structure be used in that case: "Je Jésus-Christ suis"?

I enjoyed reading this, thanks for sharing :)
