NOTE: THE ALL CAPITAL TEXT DOES NOT MEAN I'M YELLING. I JUST CHOSE TO IGNORE ORDINARY CAPITALIZATION RULES BECAUSE IT'S QUICKER AND EASIER FOR ME AND I'M NATURALLY SLOW ALREADY. 

 

WELL, IT FIRST HAPPEN DURING A FISHING TRIP WITH MY FATHER LAST SEPTEMBER. WHILE MY FATHER WAS OUT IN THE BOAT FISHING I WAS IN OUR CABIN RESTING, THEN I DECIDED TO UNPACK MY SAMSUNG GALAXY A TABLET, BUT FOR SOME UNKNOWN AND RATHER INCONVENIENT REASON, THE TABLET'S TOUCH SCREEN WAS ACTING UP. IT WOULDN'T ALWAYS RESPOND DIRECTLY TO MY TOUCH. AND SUDDENLY IT BEGAN RANDOMLY REACTING WITHOUT MY INPUT, ALMOST AS IF IT HAD A MIND OF IT'S OWN. SO I BASICALLY STOPPED USING MY TABLET AS MUCH AS BEFORE UNTIL A FEW DAYS AGO. WHEN DUE TO HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME GETTING TO SLEEP THREE NIGHTS IN A ROW, AND FEELING AS THOUGH MY BACK WAS BEHIND THE WALL AND I WAS TRAPPED IN AN UNCOMFORTABLE, UNHEALTHY CORNER, I ORDERED A UNIQUE MEDICAL DEVICE, MAYBE YOU'VE HEARD OF IT, THE APOLLO NEURO, SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO RELIEVE STRESS, IMPROVE YOUR MOOD AND SLEEP, HELP YOU FOCUS AND LEAVE YOU FEELING REFRESHED AND ENERGIZED AFTER WAKING UP IN THE MORNING. THERE WAS ONLY ONE SLIGHT CATCH. THE DEVICE WON'T BE ABLE TO DO IT'S JOB  UNLESS THE APOLLO APP IS INSTALLED ON A SMART PHONE, WHICH I DON'T HAVE, OR ANOTHER WIRELESS ELECTRONIC DEVICE WHICH I DO HAVE, THE SAMSUNG TABLET I MENTIONED EARLIER. SO YESTERDAY, EVEN THOUGH I WASN'T FEELING THAT WELL, DAD AND I WENT TO A LOCAL BEST BUY ALONG WITH THE TABLET AND THE APOLLO DEVICE AROUND MY WRIST ASKING THE GEEK SQUAD FOR TECHNICAL HELP. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY WEREN'T ABLE TO DO MUCH WITH TABLET REPAIRS AND SUGGESTED I DO A SYSTEM RESET, AND EVEN THOUGH MY FOREHEAD WAS HOT AND DIZZY, AND I WAS UNFOCUSED, AND MY FATHER KEPT BUGGING ME WHILE I WAS TRYING TO DO THE TASK I WAS TOLD TO DO, I MANAGED TO DO A FACTORY SYSTEM RESET. ONLY TO TAKE THE TABLET WITH ME, GO HOME, CONNECT THE TABLET TO OUR HOME NETWORK, GO THROUGH THE BASIC SET UP, AND REINSTALL THE OLD PASSWORD, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THE TABLET HAD COMPLETELY CHANGED THE PASSWORD ON ME TO A 4 CHARACTER LONG PASSWORD WITHOUT EVEN INFORMING ME OF THE CHANGE OR TELLING ME WHAT IT HAD CHANGED THE PASSWORD TO. AND I SHOULD PROBABLY MENTION THAT EVEN THOUGH IT'S MY TABLET, MY MOTHER BOUGHT IT FOR ME AND SET IT UP THROUGH HER ACCOUNT, AND SHE CAN'T REMEMBER THE ACCOUNT NAME OR PASSCODE, SO I SET UP MY OWN TO NO AVAIL. I TRIED EVERY PASSWORD I KNOW OR HAVE EVER USED. AND I ONLY HAVE 5 MORE TRIES LEFT BEFORE IT COMPLETELY SHUTS DOWN AND LOCKS ME OUT. I NEED THE CORRECT PASSWORD AND I NEED IT AS SOON AS MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

That is so difficult to read. It may be convenient for you but it's a nightmare for others to read and then you write a novel. Am I correct that your problem is your device is linked to your mother's Google account and she doesn't know the account name or password? If so you're out of luck. You need the account name at least. Didn't you ever email anyone?
