You need to consult with an attorney who can review your error and draft a new affidavit to correct it. Very often when non-professionals draft their own legal documents and make a mistake, it gets worse as they try to correct it. In the end, resolving the errors can be costly. The best way to obtain effective legal documents is to have them drafted by an attorney.
