Condolences.

It's incidents like this that always make me copy my long posts to the clipboard before I click on anything. That way if something happens I can always just paste it back in.

There's not much that can be done about that I'm afraid.
Session time out default is usually set to one hour (I don't know about this site in particular).
It could be set to more but that puts more strain on the server's memory for having to remember more sessions than it really needs to.

I'd recommend clicking any link at least once an hour or make sure you're still logged in before you start typing something.
