Have to say, I know exactly how you feel, I've been in a very similar boat myself. The solution thats sort of worked for us was for me to get a little more hardcore, if/when people didn't show up, ask them very publicly about where they were, and if they'd like to say anything to the players they let down. If they seem to be not taking it seriously, drop them from the raid team for the time being at least. This will undoubtedly cause all kinds of aggro, but it is worth remembering [and pointing out] that the other members of the family who are complaining are often the ones who got let down anyway. One last thing, "I cannot so much as take a weekend away without harming my guildmates, and am absolutely sure that my exiting or even taking a break will lead to the collapse of the guild." If you take a weekend off, and they can't be bothered to try a raid, then its not you harming them, its them being lazy gits. The advice above about having a raid leader run a raid while you take a step back is valuable, and worth some breathing space for you. Don't be afraid to recruit, and replace no-showers. Odds are the rest of the guild are wanting you to do that anyway. Good luck :)
