The revolution will not be televised...
But it will be blogged.
That sucks and a very similar thing happened to me when I was like 21 or so. BFF just up and leaves and I found out about it through her parents when I called there looking for her. Even they were shocked that I was completely left out in the dark. Crazy.
I am sorry!!! I stayed to myself when I lived in America, because those that "said" they were my friends, were only the fair weather type. I got sick of that fast.
