The first thing I would do is take it to an alignment shop. The techs will probably spot what is wrong with the initial inspection. That is usually free.

If that fails, then a collision repair shop may be next.

If it's that bad, then you should be able to see damage. Check the A-Arms, spindle and any component you haven't changed. I assume you are saying it's camber (bottom of the wheel is in, the top is out) and not toe. Toe is the front of the wheel is in or out. If it's toe, then just adjust the outer tie rod by either taking it off and turning it or turning the inner tie rod.

Since it is camber, then take off both wheels. Measure everything and compare to each side. Put a straight edge where you can and compare angles to see if you can spot the bad piece. Both sides are basically the same.

Exactly, you measure one side against the other. Since one side is normal, the other side will help you see what is different. If it is as bad as you describe, it should stand out when you look at one side vs the other.

I think you may want to have this towed to a shop. The tie rod is the adjustable part that controls toe in. If the bottom of the wheel is in and not the front, then adjusting the tie-rod won't help, but actually make it worse by adding a toe-in problem to the camber one you already have. I know you are afraid to drive it, so I would have it towed and professionally examined.
