new user every time

I logged on to my computer one day and noticed that all my settings/web favorites and documents were gone.
I slowly realized that when I logged on, it was no longer going to my home user rather creating a new one every time. which meant that firefox/messenger/etc were all being used opened for the first time an required set up/start pages every time I shut down my computer.
I went on apple's tech support and they said that I had probably changed my user name which sent everything out of whack. I had not done that but at this point I wasn't gonna argue. I was instructed to create a new user with admin privilages and go in as the new user and change my apple/home users name. I tried that but it did not work.
Any ideas how I could go back to using my home folder?

Did you rename your User folder at any stage

Or try to change your short name?Delusions are often functional. A motherís opinions about her childrenís beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth.
