In brief: Sudden cardiac death

Read the info in the link here.
And if you aren't in one of the high risk groups there, realize that your chances of SCD are extremely low. If this doesn't help you might need to get some psychologic therapeutic aid to help redirect your attention more productively. http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/guide/sudden-cardiac-death?page=1

In brief: Act brave

I'm going to trust that you've had an electrocardiogram and a good physical exam and given this, that you have no reason to believe you're especially likely to drop over. Your question is really, "How do I stay focused on the business of living in a world where I do know there's a small chance of my dying at any time?" My best answer is, "Find something worth living for." Cheers.
