Assurance and eternal hell

Whenever someone posts about assurance, there are typically two responses, or a mixture of both. "Don't look to yourself but to Christ" and "Judge yourself based on 1 John".

How do I know if I love God as much as a regenerate person would? When I look to myself, I see faith in the promises of Christ but also a lack of love for God. I love God some, but not as much as I would like to. Maybe my love is out of legal fear. I can't stop worrying about being cast into hell forever, the thought of it is dreadful. I was admitted to an inpatient ward for a week because of it (and mental illness, I guess). Even when I'm 95% sure I'm truly a believer, the chance that I might a false professor causes me great anxiety and I cry out to God again and again, "God, have mercy on me, a sinner. I have no hope but Christ."

How is Federal Headship fair?

How is it fair that people are born doomed from the womb for their father's transgression?

Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
