I am a 35 year old white female with depression (under control on Celexa 40mg)/stress/high anxiety.  I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure (HBP is currently normal with Lisinopril HCTZ 20/25).  

I wore a Holter monitor wich showed my average heart rate to be104.  I have not had a stress test but am in the process of getting an appointment with a cardiologist to have some testing done, I assume. My question is:  Will having an above average heart rate wear your heart out faster than an average heart rate.  (Will i die a lot sooner than someone with an average heart rate if I do nothing?)

I am sure your cardiologist will find the answer for you. My heart rate normally around 100, but on the right medication it is 60-70.Also try relaxation techniques.  Hard to say when we will die and from what? You are only 35. A very long happy life a head of you if you want it…..think less about dieing, more about living!
Try to be positive, under all circumstances. My best to you.
