Unhappy Felt so alone!

Today i felt so alone. I havent felt like that since i was sent to the psychiatrtic center. I was having a surgical outpatient procedure done and needed just one friend to join me. I was scared and needed emotional support. I got nobody. They were all supposedly busy. I begged and pleaded with people, but i was rejected several times. I cried during the whole procedure. And what made it worse is the person who did the procedure on me didnt seem to care one bit. I felt lost. Now I guess i know who my true friends are. None of them! I came home and couldn't stop crying. I just need one good friend. Is that so much to ask for? Does anybody else feel this way? Please tell me I wont always be alone. I'm not asking for prince charming. Just a friend-a really good friend.

Re: Felt so alone!

I am sorry to hear that you had to have your scary surgical procedure alone. Sounds like a traumatic experience.

I understand that you feel alone and abandoned by your friends, but I don't think I'd be so quick to dismiss them. It could be that they were indeed busy or maybe just not comfortable going to an appointment for a surgical procedure. I guess I think it would be a mistake to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

I wish you the best in finding that very close friend you are seeking. And I hope your procedure was without complications.

Re: Felt so alone!

I also am sorry for your tough time today...and also kind of agree with Nicole. I wouldn't just give up on your friends that easily. Did you give them much warning that you would need some help today? People do stay pretty busy these days and it can be hard to change plans.....Unless you know for sure that your friends were lieing to you, you might want to cut them some's not easy to find new friends, even if the ones we have are not perfect. I hope you feel better soon, and that you have a smooth recovery.

Unhappy Re: Felt so alone!

tanya. i think one of your friends should of made an attempt to come to the hospital for you. true friends would go the distance for anyone no matter what the circumstances was.. I got rid of all my ex friends because they were all negative and did drugs.. I feel u pain, because i dont have anybody in my life eaither for emotional support..
