My boyfriend is worried of dying a premature death form heart failure? My serious boyfriend has a poor heart health in the male side of his family. His grandpa, father, and I think Uncle have had heart trouble. His dad actually died of a heart attack when he was 35 years old and his father was healthy, apparently. My boyfriend is convinced he will die when he is 40 or something like that. He has never even seen a cardiologist about this. He is making these dramatic conclusions based souley on a prediction due to his family. My boyfriend is a very healthy athlete who eats well. I feel he has no worries. I do not know ow he feels considering he lost his father. He also really desire to be a good father and a father that his son knows, meaning I would have to have a child hypothetically with him when I am 25, which is a lot of pressure on me, and I am in college and not really planning that far. I dream about it, but not totally concrete. Its too much and too scary right now to even contemplate. How should I feel toward this? How should he be thinking?
