I'm with Gnarly on this one, 30mg is a turning point for many. Try to relax as much as you can until you get to a lower dose. I think you are fine for now, just keep moving forward.

john, just take it as it comes. please try to relax. you are letting to much fear in. you are stressing yourself out. dropping at 5mgs a week is a doable amount . when you get down to under 30mgs is when you have to slow down. you have about 6 weeks before you get there.
sending peace and prayers,
debbie
