On November 5, 2019 I woke up to my Instagram account being deactivated. I instantly knew because I was logged out and could not log back in. I also knew from the numerous messages of people sending me screen shots of my account with no posts, no followers, nothing.

I have been posting since 2012 and had 47k followers linked to my business. So, I was really hoping to get it reinstated.
