Over those two hours, I was allowed to be silly, to escape from the adult world and into the world of this toddler. Even though it was brief, it was very much needed. Kids aren't that scary, it turns out. You just need to be brave enough to think silly, to not make sense at all, and to have the courage to put a chocolate snowman on your porch in the middle of summer.
So why haven't you ever heard of this disease? Because Peyronie's is an embarrassing condition - it affects the penis. Most men avoid the doctor at the best of times and are even less likely to go if the problem is an intimate one. Others wrongly believe there are no treatments available and try to cope alone.
I remember leaving the clinic wanting to throw up. No one had really explained to me what was actually going on or told me what was wrong. Perhaps they thought I knew or perhaps they thought it was best I didn't. I called my mum straight away and she began the wave of 'It will be fine's that crashed down on me for the next month.
Today we have taken a big step towards solving this dilemma. The final full results of a ground breaking research study - PROMIS - have been published in the Lancet. The findings show that giving a man a multi-parametric MRI (mpMRI) scan before a biopsy can radically improve the accuracy of the diagnostic process for prostate cancer.
As I grew up, I realised that superheroes really did exist. They don't wear capes or spandex, though. You won't seeing them flying in the clouds, riding neon-coloured cars, or swinging across buildings. Some of them wear stethoscopes, some of them wear a uniform and some we will never know their names.
Since qualifying, I have always had one eye to the future, worried about what will happen to my career and my relationships, and how my disability could make a hard career even tougher. While this victory with HEE is not going to improve everything, I now know that I will not struggle alone, isolated from my loved ones, while fighting a body that never learnt the rules. We still have a way to go, but I'm going to savour this win for a long while.
The way men reacted to even the side effects of contraception, makes me very skeptical that they would handle the enormous pressure that comes with taking regular contraception. I would love to live in an ideal world where men could be trusted to take contraceptives, but as far as this entire study has shown, I don't think we're anywhere near ready.
