After a great return to the Saturday Night Live stage and the announcement of a new comedy tour, Tracy Morgan seems to have bounced back even stronger after his life-threatening car accident. While all seems to be well in the comedian’s life now, both personally and professionally, it was certainly a long and difficult road to recovery for Morgan. He recently gave an interview with GQ and detailed how difficult it was for him to reach a better state of mind and body:
“I wasn’t in a good place. I didn’t get into a good place until maybe ten months later. I started to remember and think and all of that stuff. They taught me how to walk again, and stand up and sit up again, and it was really painful for a long time. I did therapists, did cognitive what do they call it? Did cognitive therapy. Still doing it.… That therapy, the psychiatrist had to keep going back to see me.”
Morgan also credits God with his successful recovery, telling Complex:
“You don’t die for a few weeks and then come back to normal, trust me. Something’s going to be missing, something’s going to be gained—you just got to live your life after that. But after surviving something like that, I’m probably never going to feel normal. I went to the other side. This is not something I’m making up. Do you know what God said to me? He said, ‘Your room ain’t ready. I still got something for you to do.'”
While recovery is an ongoing process, Morgan seems to be finding his way. Fans are just glad that he is feeling better and that we’ll be seeing more of him again in the coming year.
