    Well looks like we earned a reduction again, my question is since we are on .9, do we go to .75 or lower? The .9 was a partial dose increase because I thought her numbers were trending up after her last earned reduction.

    Here's your last post from 2/4
    Dropping into the 30's calls for a full .25 reduction (and 20's really means business!!!)

    If you can measure it, I'd drop the full .25

    For now, your increases/reductions should be in full .25 unit increments....we only start doing the micro-dosing when we're really close to dialing in a perfect dose.

    Thanks Chris. I couldn't figure out how to link it with out sticking the whole address in my post. I will do a full .25 reduction. Before I was trying to follow this guideline:

    • If an attempted reduction fails, go right back up to the last good dose as soon as you see kitty's numbers trending upwards. You don't have to hold the reduced dose for a certain number of cycles before taking the dose right back up. The guidelines listed under the topic "Increasing the dose" do not apply to a failed reduction. Please use common sense in this situation. The "last good dose" is not the dose that just dropped kitty into the 20s or 30s. You want to resume momentum by finding a dose in-between the dose that dropped kitty too low and the reduced dose.
    Which is why I did a .9 instead of back to 1 unit. Next time I know to stick it out a little longer before increasing.

    It's fine to put the whole address in...the important part is that people can quickly go back and see what's going on, but if you want it to look "neat", here's how:

    Type what you want it to say, like "yesterday's post"....then go back and "highlight" those words (like you were going to copy them)

    Once highlighted, click on the icon along the top that looks like a single chain in a link (or a paperclip)...a new box will open up. Put the actual address into the box and hit "insert"
