No need to feel ashamed!! Withdrawals have been the worst thing I've ever had to do in my whole, including childbirth. It effects some worse than others and you may just be one of the unlucky ones whose w/d tend to be extreme. You've got a plan, now stick to it. Start from right now and work forward, taking less and less as you go. Feeling guilty and ashamed only adds to your desperation and will cause much harm, so put it behind you.
I think your plan to taper sounds perfect! You are on a relatively low dose right now, so you shouldn't feel anything but mild discomfort. Just promise yourself that when the pills are gone, that's it - you're done.
I haven't been on the boards so I missed hearing, if you wrote about it, your plan for recovery.
As for myself, I've been on been off the hydros since November and on Suboxone. I know many here don't think it's a good idea, I can attest to the fact that it saved my life when nothing else worked. Never thought I'd be able to say "I'm clean"! It might be worth looking into if you find the cravings unmanageable one you are over withdrawals.

BEST of luck to you!!!
