How to handle this anxiety disorder and move ahead in life?

I am a person suffering from a bit of obsessive compulsive disorder(ocd) and mostly religious part that is fear of committing unpardonable sin, eternal death or eternal suffering in hell from the age of 6.Also I was very shy and felt uneasy in social situations perhaps was suffering from social anxiety disorder.I felt intense fear, anxiety in my childhood about my ocd fear of sin for obsessive, compulsive thoughts about Gods, families etc.With the time it subsided.But social anxiety was still there.At present I am 22.Two years back I felt an unusual kind of problem in my mind where I got extremely worried about the problem of committing unpardonable sin in future sort of things. It seemed to me that something had got hold of my mind and completely controlled it. I couldn’t feel relaxed, always anxious etc.Thoughts continue to run in my mind despite of my efforts to neglect them. I felt that I couldn’t feel emotions and I felt anxiety all the time.The more I resisted it, the more it persisted.When I sort out a problem and feel less anxious another problem related to previous one used to pop up in front of me.Like “what if this happened in future”. After some time I decided to search on net about my condition.After intensive searching and reading I got some impression that I might be suffering from anxiety disorder. I used to feel anxiety many times before this and also depression but since the age of 20, for two years it is affecting me very much, I never felt like this before. I am not able to study, concentrate on anything and do a job or business.My memory is almost gone. But On surfing net, I found that there are some physical symptoms as well of anxiety. Like breathlessness, heart palpitations etc.But I have only mental issues. Then I think It might not be an anxiety problem because there are not any physical symptoms. I have searched on net about mindfulness, congnitive behavioral therapy(CBT), acceptance and letting go.But my anxiety is worsening.It is worsening because for the two years I am unemployed and have been unable to study because of this.and also age is slipping from my hand .I have already wasted two years. Being a socially anxious person, I think what people would think about me. An unemployed person. I am unable to manage my time.I put pressure and stress on myself for finishing every task early so that I can manage time effectively. But I am in catch-22 situation. Having not been able to study in this mental condition is worsening my anxiety. And that is causing more problem and I feel utter lack of concentration and relaxation and cann’t study.I am not able to experience my surroundings. It seems I am not aware of my environment.I find myself thinking all the time solution for this anxiety and all time I am in head and this is making problem worse. My financial condition is poor.What can I do at this time to relax myself and pursue my study and get a job which is possible if this anxiety comes to a manageable level.Also I live with my old age dad.We are two members in family.He is putting pressure on me for marriage because he wants to see me happy and not alone after him. But I think Why anybody else suffer because of my mental condition.At the same time I think that With whom I will live after my dad.There are many such questions in front of me at this time?I desperately want to feel in control of my feelings and emotions and want to relax but this desperation is bringing more uncomfort.There is social stigma attached if people come to know of my condition.Being a socially anxious person that is very hard to handle.Moreover a career, job can bring me some sort of security but who will give me a job without proper education and If anybody gives me a job , I will not be able to stay there for more than a week because my mental condition,lack of concentration and awareness,memory will land me in problem there.What to do? Please help me.
