    I have a bad heart condition which means that if I over exert myself like running standing up to quickly walking upstairs on standing up for too long I pass out. I dont know whatr this looks like whether its just me looking a bit dizzy or ill but my eyesight goes and so does my hearing and I come round usually on the floor.

    Ive been with my boyfriend over a year but ive managed not to pass out in front of him at all. However Ive been stupid ive been trying to loose weight so have cut down my portion sizes signifcantly which now im not bothering to do and last night I passed out while sitting down. He got really angry at me because he said he was asking if i was ok and i didnt answer ( i didnt hear him) and that when he asked what was wrong when i came round i said im fine ( because half the time i dont even realise ive passed out)

    He just seemed really angry and uncaring about it and im really worried its put him off me and maybe he will break up with me. My ex did he said it was to much to handle and didnt want a sick girlfriend but a healthy one, and im worried my now boyfriend will think the same. What shall I do
    It would probably have been helpful to say about your condition before it happens so your boyfriend doesn't think you've died. Is there anything he should do to revive you? I wouldn't find it a problem just got to speak about it.

    To be honest he sounds like a ****. Why are you concerned about him dumping you when he doesn't appear to be even slightly concerned as to how or why you fainted? Heaven forbid you might not answer him immediately. It's going to sound harsh but you need to find a bit of self respect and stand up for yourself. Either he apologises or you dump him.

    It's easy to jump on the bandwagon and say the BF is a ****, but if he was scared because he didn't know what was happening and OP was acting like it was no big deal, he's got reason to be pretty angry. If he knows about the condition completely and still can't deal with it, find someone else. If he doesn't know about it fully, forgive him and explain it properly.

    No he doesn't need to be angry he needs to be concerned. Or a least momentarily angry (due to fear) followed by concerned for her welfare. I fail to see why it is believed he has some divine right to act like a douche. I have dealt with a lot of 'scary' situations and have never once lost my temper about it.

    Yes, you'd be concerned obviously.. But she said he was asking if she was ok and she didn't answer him, then she fainted, and then acted like it was no big deal. I'd be angry that she can be (what looks like) nonchalant about something so serious.

    Did you not read the OP properly? I doubt (effective) exercise is an option for her, only slow stuff like yoga, Pilates, possibly very gentle swimming.
    She will be able to do some exercise, otherwise she would be dead. Also eating little will certainly not be an option as that would cause numerous problems which would increase her problem, from low blood pressure to mineral deficiency.

    Either he was afraid of what had happened to you and expressed this as hysterical anger, or he's a bit of a ****...

    He seemed uncaring so he doesn't care, if he loves you'll be his first concern or maybe he does care and doesn't want you to see this side to him figure out if he loves you then decide what's best
