I screwed up, please help

Well, the pattern for my desire HD decided to stop working. I know I didn't forget it, because I'd used it 5 minutes prior.

Anyway, I was prompted to login with my gmail details. I'd completely forgotten them. The sole purpose of that account was just to use on Android. I'd never used or seen it after that.

So, I had to reset my phone and long story short; how do I access my paid apps? Surely I can use my credit card as some kind of proof of purchase?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, but I meant I don't know my email or password. I used it once two months ago and I didn't setup a secondary email.

So, is there anyway android can recover my apps or give me my email with my credit card details?
