HELP needed....

Here's the scoop.

Over a week ago, hubby set up his brother with a gmail account, using my computer.... sounds innocent enough... right........

somehow it piggy backed his new account with my existing account.
When hubby tried detaching them, my account appeared to be wiped out completely.. so I began to reset it up.
When I visited my own blog - MINE, it doesn't recognize me as author, nor does it here.
After much clicking around, and having password assist and other helps emailed to me, my brother in laws account is what controls MY account... the one that I have access to my blogs.
Does ANYBODY at all have a clue how to reclaim my account without wiping out his? For now I reset the password on his before I knew it did that... so he will not be able to access his email (not that he does much anyways...)

Ready to pull out my hair, and why? Because it's too much work for him to hit the button on his own computer and turn it on... grrrr

any help would be hugely appreciated :)

just very frustrating, if I use my sign in info, then I have no access, but if I assume his identity, then I'm me, how weird is that???

that 1st comment was me reclaiming myself on the hijacked account.
This is my on my new one I had to set up before I realized I had been hijacked... what a mess

anybody with a clue how to untangle this mess will be my hero for life :)

Part of the problem may be that you are switching between accounts.

This is your original account (your username is capitalized):

This is a replacement account created this month (username not capitalized):

Your comments above switch between the accounts.

Gee, hope you know that now you are required to post twice as much!

I noticed a day or two ago that Lizardmom's username was now in lowercase. I thought it had been in uppercase, but ascribed it to my advancing dementia. I figured it out today when she posted with both accounts.

I thought it had wiped me out completely after whatever he did, so I started to recreate myself with the new one. Then I got to thinking to check my own blog and click on my profile and there it was, still existed, but had a heck of a time figuring out how to get into it.
MY dashboard and all my stuff is now controlled by my brother in laws email and stuff , and I can't figure out how to separate from it as it won't allow me to reset the primary email, only secondary emails.
I may not be articulating my problem well, any 'consultants' that think they can help, please come on over :) it's a mess..
