I wondef if this happens to anyone else who uses a mobility aid/can't move as fast as others, have you ever been friends with anyone who are more able boddied than you, they move faster places and so you're stuck playing catch up? I experience this all of the time and it feels very embarrassing and it feels like I slow people down and in turn I feel very insecure and alone. I know it most likely isn't on perpose but it feels very isolating and that they'd have a better time without me, especially if its being made a joke out of after you tell them.

    Don't think like that, I'm sure it doesn't bother anyone but you. I'm also sure that once you tell the people you're with to slow down a bit they'll do it so you don't feel like you're chasing them. I really understand the feeling and I also suffered from it in the past but every time I felt that I was left behind I talked to the people and everyone really understood it. Have you tried talking to them?
