I'm not sure why all my credit was reversed. Can someone take a look please?

Both your total credit and your recent average credit are higher than in the project list on your account page, so it doesn't look like your credit decreased recently. Your computers are hidden, so that's all we can see.

My guess : You have two accounts here, the one you posted with has 323,458 credits, the second one has 32,103 credits, and you checked the wrong one.

The connection between your cross-projects account is created through the mail that you entered when you created the project account, not through the user name. So your CPDN account "Gerry D. Mann" is connected to "Smimo" on Einstein and SETI and there are a bunch of other "Smimo" accounts that are each connected to other projects.

Search BOINCstats for Smimo and you'll see a list of separate cross-project accounts.

p.s.: This BOINC wiki entry might help to understand what happened.
