HELP I used tap water on my neti pot

Around a week ago, my husband and I had a pretty bad cold and sinus problems. So he got a neti pot to help with that. He prepared it and we both used it. He used tap water and he didn't boil it. Just warmed it on the microwave. Later on I did some research and found out about the brain eating amoebas that live in the water and I am terrified, to the point that I can't even sleep. Does anyone else know of someone who has done this? Help, please I'm freaking out!
