Oh my, that’s terrible!
First, check if there is a Deleted Users folder on your hard drive. Log in with another account and in Finder, choose to Go > Go to Folder, then enter /Users/Deleted Users, and select Go. See if your old account is there.
If so, follow the instructions in this Apple White Paper (https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25515?locale=en_US)
Restoring your files and a user account is also possible if you back up your Mac routinely via Time Machine.
1. Enter Time Machine
2. Go to Finders window
3. Browse Backup History to find your files or user account
4. Choose the files
5. Click on Restore
6. Specify the Destination Location
