When is enough?

Everything has intensified with anxiety and depression the last 3 years. I'm still running the road at times for people that have illnesses in my partner's family. I've tried to do it from a good place but I'm at the point where I'm having meltdowns when I have to drive. I'm getting resentful and the depression gets worse at times when this is what a big part of life revolves around.  Don't mean to play martyr but I've kept saying yes till I'm exhausted. And these are people who don't understand or remember that I have issues and don't really care. No one ever calls me          to see how my symptoms are or how I'm feeling. My partners' mother actually said to someone she knew that had confided she was depressed and feeling empty that 'she didn't look empty'.....the  implication being that she looked like she ate more than enough. This is the mentality of people I take to  doctor appointments, visit in the hospital and give my time and effort to. I really believe that anxiety and  depression  leaves is vulnerable to guilt and a fear           of saying no. I also tend to say yes to social events or get togethers when there are times I feel like dying. It's not often a situation where I feel better after I make the effort and get there. Does anyone relate on some level with this?
