Your experience is an excellent example of why we urge clients not to search the internet for clues to their risk. While the internet can be an excellent source of communication and information from established sources, it is also a place where there is a huge amount of mis-information which typically leads to misunderstanding and unnecessary worry. This is what has happened to you. Take care. EWH
