1) Log-in with your email and password 2) There will be a red sign that says you have tried to log-in with a deactivated account. They will use your email that you used to register to send an email about reactivation. Subject should be: “Facebook Reactivation Confirmation” 3) Click on the link when you receive that email and you will be good to go!

Hi. I had a similar problem... it can be fixed! Email facebook and explain what happened. Be patient and persistent.
send email to:
the first email I received back from them (day after I emailed) was generic saying:
"Our records indicate that there is not a disabled account associated with the address you are writing from. If you are referring to another account that has been disabled, please contact us directly from the email address you use to log in to that account..."
Except the email I was using DID belong to my missing account. So I replied with the SAME original message. And detailed what happened to my account.
I received a SECOND response, identical to the first.
I emailed them AGAIN detailing what happened.
FINALLY (about 1 1/2 weeks later) I received this email:
Your original account has been reactivated and you should be able to access it now. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you have any further questions, please visit our Help Center at the following address:
Thanks for contacting Facebook,
IT CAN BE RESTORED!!!! :) firstname.lastname@example.org

You're just going to have to make a new one...you can still use the same email address since it's deactivated, so if it says that the email address already exists, then you have to reactivate it a different way.

Tell your friends who were in the friends list of your old facebook account to look at your profile info for email id. That would be your login mail id. Enter that mail id in 'Forgot password' link and get confirmation code. Paste that as per mail instructions and get new password. Login with that password and mail id you received from friends and enjoy your facebook.

First you will reset your password and then you will deactivate the account.
On the Facebook login page click on Forgot Password? and follow the instructions to reset your password. After you have reset your password, you log into Facebook and go to My Account, Setting and deactivate my account.
