    Foreword

    The Matt Reidy story serves as a beacon for many. As each of us face off, endure or battle the oppressive CC Beast, we seek out the best pathway back to normality. Matt’s story is different from many but he found his way back to his family and a new normality. Matt has now gone on to become a great inspiration to the CC Community at large, using his renewed energy to simplify the mountains of complicated information and jargon that flows in almost daily. You could say Matt has donated his energy and determination back to those who are still on their journey and do not have the physical or mental capacity to deal with all this. Every community needs those who have made the crossing to light up the pathway for others to follow and that is what Matt is doing.
