... it's been 2-4 mg. every other day. Am I still destined to have withdrawal hell? I was hoping maybe I wouldn't because of the day or sometimes days I threw in there that I didn't take it. Thoughts?

Klonopin is a long acting benzodiazepine, hence the reason you can go a couple of days and not feel any withdrawal. Since you have been taking upto 4 mg every other day, I would say yes, you will likely feel some withdrawal and should really taper from this medication rather than stop abruptly.
