Access Denied- Resetting Your Blog

Lost Username and Password for WordPress? Check Older Email Accounts
WordPress Account Locked

Okay, so lesson learned.

You’ve not heard from me in awhile unless you follow me on ParkerTownsend.com. Here’s what happened…

Illness Adaptation was self-hosted my self-hosted blog for 1 year, after deciding not to purchase the domain for another year, this blog reverted back to WordPress.com hosting.

What does that mean for us? During the revert back to WordPress.com hosting I had forgotten the username and password, I tried many passwords, usernames, and WordPress help variations to get my account back. With no access to IllnessAdaptation, I was not able to post to you guys and girls in over 6 months.

Terrible, I know…

The only upside was that I could still read this blog as a reader only, which let me see the ‘likes’ and the comments from you who had commented previously and did not require moderation from me.

Here’s what I learned:

  1. Keep ALL account information, passwords, usernames, etc. Even if you don’t think you’ll need them in the future… Chances are, you will.
  2. Use Password Assistants on Chrome and IE Browsers.

For Chrome– Open your Chrome browser and from the top right Chrome menu button, select Settings. Alternatively, you can simply type chrome://settings in the address bar and hit Enter. Scroll down and click on Show advanced settings. Now scroll down to the Passwords and forms section and click on the Manage passwords link.

For Internet Explorer– In Internet Explorer, select the Tools button, and then select Internet options.
On the Content tab, under AutoComplete, select Settings.
Select the User names and passwords on forms check box, and then select OK.

But…
If You’re building a Site Now There’s Google Smart-Lock

This is pretty sweet and backed with enough security and non-sensitive information that won’t scare me into NOT using it.

Google Smart-Lock helps remember all usernames and passwords by saving them into cloud-based Google and can be set to automatically enter the information when asked for by your login screens. 

Look It Up!

My saving grace finally came today when trying to log on to this blog under an older username and the username for this blog popped up, I was able to click ‘forgot password’ and I realized it was sent to an older email account that I had nearly forgotten about. This was actually an email that I meant to delete awhile back but never got around to scrapping it. Good thing too, that would leave me with no access to request a password for this account…

I made previous attempts but they were always to the incorrect emails. WordPress help could not help me since I did not have the proper activation code, received when I created the blog, and this came only in the forgotten email account. If you’re thinking of deleting old, forgotten accounts, you should have a damn good reason and know without a doubt you’ll never need that account again, for anything.

Old forgotten accounts can be linked to user and password information from other forgotten accounts that you need to recover in the future.

Now that I’m back on IllnessAdaptation, I’m hoping to reconnect with you as summer fades to fall. How have you been in your life since the absence?

I can think of a lesson here, and that is, Never Quit, Never Give Up, here’s a great read for those who want to accomplish goals never before met.

Glad to reconnect with you and please, let me know how things are, can’t wait to share the new book that is in the works on my NEW Author Page. You can check out my author page by Going Here…

Stay Up!

What you’re reading this on, started out as a freethought blog. Meaning, I set out to write anything in my mind, if you have been fortunate enough to stumble upon these words, you may feel the sudden stress of force-feeding random thoughts down your throat.

Honestly, though, I geared this blog more towards overcoming the thought that I was mentally ill, over time I realized that I was conditioning my own demise by the thoughts that I dwelt on day in and day out.

Believe it or not, this is an overcoming kind of free thought blog, I took the knowledge I learned about the illness and built myself up into a powerful, strong man.

Of course, you’ll see some fishing posts here and another randomness about being a badass, as I am looking back within my mind.

Another side of recovery… High

cbdagreement

I’ve been given the legal documents that state my need for using medical marijuana, aka ‘my script.’ Now, this is mostly new to me, which is why my consultation and seeing the doctor was so much appreciated.

The Dr. really gave me the run down on how I could use different strains of marijuana to balance myself out for variations that come to me in life.

She reassured me that this is a legal and alternative to harmful medications that are destroying my body, which is what I had mentioned.

My card will come in the mail soon, in the meantime, the script above will allow me to get started on treatment. I will start off slow and move up. Ironically, this is how Dr’s treat patients with pills. They started me off with 5mg and in no time I was up to 40mg.

If you are looking into alternative, healthier options to treatment may be getting a consultation and getting approved for a card is for you?

I am looking to get off of pills altogether, I was for years but recently I needed something to help out again. With CBD’s and gummies, I am looking to better body and mind with this new type of treatment for myself.

Marijuana use, when regulated, is as safe if not safer than using prescription drugs and pills. The problem is that a majority of those who don’t have loved ones suffering, cancer, or issues of any kind all want it banned. So the Government does not allow any extensive testing to be done, as they do with pills.

We just don’t get the facts that we need…

I think it could help me, and maybe others who suffer any kind of illness, pain, disorder, etc…
