Ya gotta gut it out Droopy.....you've gotta stick to the taper. Didnt you already start dropping down already? Don't so it to yourself....dont make yourself have to start over. You'll regret it, trust me. You CAN do this. Get it into your head what you need to do, and just do it. It will ALLLLLL be worth it in the end....you know it will.
Good luck to you my friend....and God bless.
