I am down to one 50 mg. tablet once a day. The withdrawals are pretty intense. I am afraid of tapering to half a pill and then to nothing. Mentally I am done with the stuff, but physically I am still hooked.

If I were down to one 50mg tablet a day like you, and still had your pretty intense withdrawals, I would stay at that same dose for a while longer until your body feels more comfortable and physically ready for another reduction. And I would make that reduction pretty small, too. Don't be too quick with it or you will suffer a lot physically which might undo you mentally. That's great if you are mentally done with the stuff already! That is the hardest part, I think.
