I am absolutely frantic right now because I've (in the blink of an eye) lost what was probably the MOST IMPORTANT note I've written all year. I am constantly writing in my iPhone 5's notes app. I've been writing one document in particular all day. Probably the most important one I've written all day. I accidentally closed the notes app, which I try not to do, and my note was GONE!!! Everything since 3am this morning.

I noticed a while ago that my phone, when I close the app, will delete the progress, since there is so little storage space on my phone. Other times, though, and especially recently, it will still be there. I REALLY REALLY REALLY need this note back. Is it gone forever? Is there a way I can restore it? Can I plug it into iTunes or access the files. Anything?!

log in to iCloud on a computer/web browser and open Notes there...
