    Im running 10.8.5 and have my main (admin) account plus a guest user account

    Now today after waking up from sleep, in the login screen my main account is missing, thus only letting me access the guest account. I've tried disk utility so far and rebooting with no luck, my files are still under /Users/ but can't access them, going to sys preferences doesn't show the admin account and isn't letting me change anything since it doesn't recognize my password. I've never had this happened before, how can i make my main account appear at the login screen again?
