We would not have changed your username. The username that you are posting from was created in October of 2015. Can you tell me your old username so that I can look it up for you and help get this fixed for you?

Yeah, at some point you had a second account because these are under 2 different email addresses.

I am going to send you a PM with my email address so that I can help you recover your account.

Thank you, I am now logged back in. Can you remove the second account so that I can update my email address?

I'm back! [cue evil laughter]

Happiness is not the result of a mathematical equation comparing the good times and bad times someone has had. It is a state of mind.

was just able to reset it after a few months , had some health issues going... was worried i wouldn't do it and it took me about 10 mins or less to reset.
This also happened when i just changed my emails so, i had have a brand new email for several months now. So it was good to go too.
