Not seeing the draft I just wrote!!

    I’m so frustrated! I just spent an hour + writing a post. It was 1000 words or so; finished the post, added my tags, checked my categories, etc and clicked the preview button, when the preview came up the only thing that showed up was my post title. I went back to my editing screen and nothing was there! Not only that but there are timestamp links where it “supposedly” autosaved during the last hour several times and when you click on those, nothing shows up in the body of my post! Where did my freaking post go? This is beyond frustrating to the point where I don’t even want to mess with WordPress any longer. Do any of you have any answers, seeing as how you can’t get “pro” help unless you’re a premium user.
