While in Develop mode I received a pop up from LR and couldn't X it out so logged off. Now when I logged back in absolutely everything is gone. How do I get my stuff back?

It is possible that a new, empty catalog was created. Try to open the File menu, and choose Open Recent. Look for a different catalog, and open it. It may contain your photographs.
If that does not work, try to let File Explorer (Finder on Mac) search the computer for catalog files, using search criteria ".lrcat". Look for catalog with a newer date and file size that most likely is your working catalog.
