Back After The Worst Night Mare Happened in my life!!!

Forgot Google Account PasswordThe last four days in my life was the worst days ever. The worst ever night mayor happened in my life. Here is what happened.

3 days back i have updated my google account with a new and strong password. On the next day i woke up in the morning at 6 am and opened my browser to sign in to my Google account. I was shocked to see that i was not able to login to my google account. Then the idea of resetting the password came to my mind. So i went for it. But again i lost my hope. I haven't given a secondary email address for my google account. But after trying again i was presented with the security question to which i dont know the correct answer! My heart almost stopped at that time.
All This happened because i have created a google account two years back. I was a total newbie at that time to the world of internet. So i didn't care about filling the security question, adding a secondary email address etc. I just scribbled some thing in there to create an account in a hurry. Then after i havent cared about such things since there didn't arise an idea of creating a strong password for my account.

With all my hope lost i used this google form https://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/request.py?ara=1&hl=en and contacted google filling the required details. But the very next day i got a the reply that google cant give my account back since the details i provided was not enough.
After all that i created a new email address and contacted many friends telling about this problem. They all told me not to lose hope and there will be some way i will get my account back. So the next morning again i have filled the form after thinking a lot and calculating the exact date i created my account etc, i filled the form correctly.
And Luck blessed me today with a mail from Google Team saying that they have set the email i send them as my secondary email address and i can reset my account's password.
And i Thank my Friends and the Great Google Team for the Quick Support They Provided.
So friends, think before you do any thing. If you are i the habit of forgetting important things write down it on a bool or paper and keep it safely. There is no harm in doing it. And nobody should do this same mistake again after reading this.

Hey Its so good to see that you got your email back and congratulation to you.
Don't forget to use Google mobile feature , so that next time if something goes wrong you will get your password back.
