Your friends need a slap to learn to be dependable. It could have been a fire for goodness sake. I hope you got some assistance either way. If you intend to spend more time with them next time just bring your crutches to be on the same side.
Next time don't believe your friends. I will never understand people who put so much trust in their friends, I've made that mistake one and haven't done it again. They don't know what you're going through, only you do, so they can't really be sympathetic to your needs. Learn from this, okay?
By your logic, that only the OP knows what they are going through, NO ONE can be sympathetic to anyone else, and therefore you should trust no one. Good friends actually can be sympathetic. You just need to be careful not to trust your total physical well being to "buddies" who you don't know that well.
That's such a negative outlook. Perhaps your friends can't fully understand you, but there's this thing called "empathy." Good friends don't have to feel your pain to sympathize with you. In my opinion, friends like that are rare, but it's great when you have a few in your corner. And you have to put yourself out there or you won't ever find those kind of friends. OP made a mistake by relying on those "buddies." Now he knows, but it doesn't mean he should never ever trust anyone again.
