I'm Detached - Help !!!

I'm Detached - Help !!!

I’m embarrassed to say that within 30 minutes of installing FTM I have managed to detach myself from the family tree. I am still listed on the Index and when I click on my name, there is no other members displayed. When I go to the Index and click my mother’s name, my remaining ancestors are displayed but I do not exist.
I believe this occurred shortly after adding my husband & then trying to add a marriage record. I haven’t a clue what I did but my biggest concern is to get things back to normal. I have tried my best to locate some solutions to this via online and book sources but with no luck. I would now be so grateful if someone could help.
I was so looking forward to getting stuck in and using the program and now I am feeling lost and confused.

1) Find yourself in the index.

2) Click on Person > Attach/Detach Person > Attach Father.
