Seeking Tamoxifen sucess stories

Hello, I am in my early 50s, had a lumpectomy for stage 1, grade 3 breast cancer in December, was able to omit chemo due to my Oncotype score of 13, and am finishing radiation tomorrow. I have been prescribed tamoxifen to start after radiation, and came here to read about what to expect. I probably shouldn't have started by reviewing the posts of those who decided or were forced to quit hormonal therapy due to side effects and poor quality of life. I'm wondering if there are success stories? Are there some for whom the drug does not cause significant side effects or who can tolerate the side effects well? Would love to hear about any successes on this drug. Thanks in advance.
