If i say my diesease definatly you will shock doctor. Please advice me where to go ?

Everyone will ask..like how to be healty and happy.But my problem is not related to that.

1.day by day iam lossing my human thoughts.

2.Before going to master health check I know only one thing .. that heart attacks will come when we eat cholestrol food and not doing proper exercise. So i used to exercise daily.

3. Recenthly 2 months back i went for master health check up and everything was fine.
but little abnormality in ECG that is T down in V5 to V6. HR 76bpm.
So physician told me to go for ECHO TEST.

4. I went to ECHO and the results are
EVERYTHING IS NORMAL and MILD MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE.

5.I was searched about the disease in google and shocked a lot.Because of this prolapse
in future we may get many problems... and sudden deaths.
6.now iam habituate to read about this disease in google and getting anxiety.
7.I came to know that i have MVP on 21/dec/2009 from that day iam not happy.

After 15 days i went to another doctor he told me that he is unable to find that prolape.
Its too little prolapse so no problem. rest all is well.

again after 15 days i went to another doctor and he told me that i do not have prolase. It is normal with 1.8mm thkckness.

So now whom i believe...Doctor?


8.Actually iam addicted to google... I read patient giude,how patients are suffering with these diesease.

9.My self iam thinking that iam in danger .. i may die,
i think i may die in some days.. then y i need this job and enjoyment.Always iam thinking of deaths only,,, Y iam doing like this iam only not understanding.

10.Stopped enjoyng with frds.. and
User :   stopped exercises.
11.Some internet sites ..i found information like ..without regurgitation also people died and many Athelets died with mitral valve prolapse. Iam thinking i like If i do JIM may be it will happen to me.If i go for runnig may be its danger.
Always iam thinking like i may get chest pain...faint..tachicardia ( HR more than 100) or any other heart dieases.(which iam redaing in google and addicting)

12. every movemenet is going bad in my life.Unable to concentrate on job or anything.

13.And now iam hating to work in S/W industry and not interst to work in rotating shift timimngs.I want to live but not thinking with all thses diesease.how doctor?
14. I do not have hopes doctor ,,, that i will recover,.
15.Please suggest me.. what to do.. am i gone mad or am in panic?
