This is bizarre

Today I was searching my bulk mail folder to make sure nothing was being sent there that wasn't supposed to be, and I found a spam message claiming to have been sent to me from my address!

Can anyone tell me if this is something I should worry about or not?

This is hugely common. It's trivial to make an email appear to have been sent from your address.

(if it's showing up in your sent mail folder, then you have a problem)

As you've been told, it's common.

I'm surprised you haven't seen it before.

Some day I'll walk you thru the headers of some email messages so you can see how this sort of thing works.
