Default Lost "me" contact in "people" and quicksettings

I recently rooted my VZW 4.4 non-DE, and the only problem I'm seeing is that my "me" contact has vanished. I first noticed the issue in my quick settings pulldown. There is a tile in the top left, but it's just a stock cartoon image of a head. If I click it, i get the message "The contact does not exist." If I go into the "people" app, there is a tiny "ME" in text at the very top, but there is no actual contact that I can access at all.

Any ideas? (Prior to root, it was working just fine.)

EDIT: I'm seeing that logging into Google+ might do the trick. I'll give that a shot.

For anyone having this issue, on the newer OS, you must have installed Google+ and SYNC at least once, the you can prevent it from syncing after.

of course, you must have a google+ profile correctly configured and tied to your phone gmail account.
