**apart from the undo button.... because it isn't working, it doesn't let me click on it, it's gray.

Check if there's temporary file in directory you saved the file.
Copy it and rename it with .doc extension.
Word keeps backups as temp files and I have succeeded to save lost stuff from those temp files.
If it is not there-shit.

^what moose said.

Make a practice of saving important documents in more than one location (making a jump drive or network location one of those places in case your computer crashes).  I started doing backups after loosing something I had worked on for a few weeks due to a corrupted file.

to add what was already said:

Have frequent backups!
Made them happen automagically!

If you have to think when to do backups - you will forget, and if you have to do them manually, you won't do them until it's too late.
