Just got to the part where you're supposed to drop Ellie off in Boston but all the fireflies are dead. You REALLY have to be stealthy in this difficulty because you have to conserve everything, which is that much harder because Runners and Clickers can detect you much easier.
The hardest part is definitely the beginning of winter when you're holding off the infected with David. The rest of it isn't too bad if you manage your supplies well. You can stealth through a pretty good portion of the game, although there are a few times when you have to kill everyone in the area to move forward. And remember, the brick/bottle melee combo is your best friend on the harder difficulties. Same with the bow and arrow. Only use guns as a last resort so you'll have ammo for the forced combat encounters (like Tommy's dam).
Hope this helps.
