I am there. I have been on hormone replacement therapy since I was 27. I've tried several times to reduce the dosage and quit completely but all the symptoms you mentioned come screaming back up. It took me over six months to cut my dosage in half this year. I still have the symptoms from time to time, but it has settled down some. My goal is to let my body adjust to this dosage for the next few months then cut it in half again.

I started taking evening primrose to help some of the symptoms. Black cohash is also often recommended, but I don't know much about it.

Wishing you both lots of luck with it!
