How to know if you should distance a friend

Hi, bit of advice please. I have been friends with someone for about 15 years, met through kids school. Its complicated because she has had quite a lot of tragedy in her life but strangely she is one of the most unsympathetic and compassionate people I know. You would think she'd be more empathatic. Long story short because we have history and other mutual friends, I find it hard to break off the friendship, I try to be more distant and don't tell her everything anymore as she just uses it against me but she's not supportive at all when I need it and I just end up disappointed. Recently I text that my husband was admitted to hospital for eg and she didn't respond or brushes it off. I spend too much time worrying about it all because shes not all bad but shes not that nice either and I'm not sure what I get out of it really. I have other friends I spend more time with. Shes quite a jealous person too which is an ugly trait of hers. Any suggestions please? I've tried talking to her in the past when shes upset me but it doesn't really change anything long term
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU
