You are the only one who has your password. I don't know why you think we know the password that you set.

Also, if there were a way around the password, don't you think that would kind of defeat the whole purpose of encrypting your drive?

You're on your own here, I'm sorry.

Password, recovery key, whatever. It makes no difference. Why do you think we have your recovery key? We don't know you, we've never seen your computer and you certainly never gave us the recovery key which YOU set.

If you remember the password then you have no need for a recovery key, which by the way was generated and given to you when you encrypted the drive. If you didn't write it down or save it to removable media then you're out of luck. There are no back doors to Bitlocker. If you don't have the PIN or recovery key then the data is permanently unrecoverable.
