I do not have a backup, but most of the data I have on it will not have been override, so I was hopping that I would be able mount it somehow, and recover it to another hdd.

You'll have to take to google, my experience begins and ends with undeleting photos from flash media using test disk.  Our wiki is limited on the topic, but may provide some starting points: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/File_Recovery

Get testdisk.  I use Parted Magic to recover partitions with Testdisk.  So long as you can decrypt the resurrected partitions AND provided you have NOT written to those two partitions after they were fdisk'ed you should be able to recover from this mess.  I really recommend PartedMagic for this sort of thing only because it has a good interface and a lot of other tools in one place.

Testdisk isn't hard to use and there are mini-tutorials out there if you're really stuck such as these links from our wiki:
Testdisk and Photorec


I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror.  --Awebb
