Fear of going to hell

I have a drastic fear I am going to hell when I die and I am scared. I keep reciting these words and keep having these negative thoughts, or having inappropriate thoughts about something and if something terrifying or catastrophic happenings in the world I think it's from me, like I have an evil power. I've been watching the world news and if something bad happens like death or terrorism I think I am the one causing it and when I die God will judge me and send me to hell!!!! I know it is my OCD kicking in. My psychiatrist told me yesterday to stop watching the news and do things that keep my mind off of it and she said there is no way my thoughts have causes these bad happenings in the world. But, it is not enough, I think I am going to hell. I have even thought about talking with a priest or going to confession, it's that bad and I am not even a religious person. Anyone out there can help me?  I am so frightened what will happen to me when I die.

God says we must confess and repent of our sins and we will be forgiven. When we repent of our sins and receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior our relationship with God is restored. The Bible says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)

Jesus Loves You! and he wants you to know Him. When you receive Jesus you become Brand New :)

Hello Autumnsky,

I wanted to write you regarding your statement ' I am going to hell when I die and I am scared. In the Bible it says ' For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. God Loves you so much and we were created to have a relationship with God, but, because of our stubborn self-will, we chose to go our own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is evidence of what the Bible calls sin.
The Bible says "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." The good News is God Loves you, he died on the cross for you sins, and paid the price of sin. He Loves You God has provided a Remedy for our sins. In Romans 10:9-10 it says 'Romans 10:9-10 (King James Version)

Romans 10:9-10 'That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.'
Jesus provided Salvation to whomever will come, the Bible says in Acts 2:21 'And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' and  the Bible also says in John 6:37  'All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.' God Loves you, God is calling you and God wants you, if this is the desire of your heart. Please say the Prayer below.

Prayer:
"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be."

If you have prayed this prayer you are saved. Receive Jesus Today.

Do you also list reasons for why you'd be going to hell, or is it just the thought/feeling that you are going to hell?

You obviously know this is an irrational thought and that you are stuck on it.  So what does the psychiatrist do for you other than to tell you to not watch TV and distract yourself?  Does he/she have you on medication?
