How much do you get at 1x a day?

For those who pump 1x a day (or did), how much do/did you get? How many months pp were you when you dropped to 1x a day? How much did you used to get at the height of your EPing career and how many times a day did you pump then?
Sorry for all the questions. I'm not even a full 5 months pp and I have seriously had it with the pump, but I feel insanely guilty about wanting to quit. One time a day I could seriously handle, even if it meant I was only getting enough for one meal (any BM is better than none, right?)
I currently pump 5x a day and get about 30ish oz. I used to get 35-40, but my supply mysteriously dropped 4 weeks ago on the right side only, and went down to 25 a day overall. I am taking Dom and am back up to 30. I still have to supplement with frozen as DD is eating anywhere from 31-35 in a day. When the frozen runs out I will have to supplement with formula.
Anywho, I am going to drop to 4x a day starting next Monday (DD's 5-month birthday), even if it means another drop in my supply. I started thinking that as I have to give more formula, it may just become easier and easier to HUTH. But as I said, the idea of at least pumping 1x a day does sound great, and it may help to alleviate at least some of my guilt. :(
