Hi Laura, I agree with everything that SE said, I know of no one better suited than you for this position.  You have suffered and been strong, much stronger than I would have ever been,  who ever made the choice for you as a moderator should be congradulated for work very well done.
Very well done indeed to say the least.
Take care, and hope you are feeling as good as you possibly can.
