We don't know what you did, either.  Perhaps something
messed up /etc/fstab so /home is not getting mounted?
Only you can find out what is wrong and what to do about
it.  _W_H_A_T_ lines fail when you boot?  What distribution
and release are you using?  What hardware are you using?

If you are competent, you can restore from backup media
if you can't restore access to your home directory by
other means.

Linux isn't fragile.  Except for hardware problems or an
occasional software bug, it does what you tell it to do.
If you were running as root and entered a command to
delete a bunch of files, then the fault would be yours,
not the system that obeyed what you told it to do.

If you want help on this mailing list, you'll have to
provide some information: OS distribution and release,
some idea of what you were doing that caused the problem,
what errors show up when you boot, etc.
