I am totally the same way; you are NOT alone in your fears/sensible approach to protecting that area. I think we've all been through so much we don't want to have more issues that are quite avoidable.
Love summers last comment though
I went on a world cruise and people were saying "Aren't you afraid of pirates off the Somalia Coast?" I said, "So NOT compared to what I've been through" I said, "If those pirates hassle me, I'll just take off my bag and wing it at them, they would faint dead away."
I think what summer is saying is, continue to sensibly protect, but try not to worry. That's what I'm working toward too.
