'Young Sheldon' star Raegan Revord suffered from PTSD, panic attacks after car crash with drunk driver

“Young Sheldon” actress Raegan Revord is opening up about the scary incident that left her with PTSD and experiencing panic attacks.

While reflecting on the latest episode of the “Big Bang Theory” prequel, Revord recounted the “challenging” experience she had while shooting.

“Tonight’s episode was incredibly challenging for me to film, personally,” Revord wrote to her Instagram. “On the way to work my mom and I were t-boned by a driver driving under the influence. The irony here is I’m pretty much in a car for this entire episode, but you know what they say, ‘You gotta get back on the saddle.’”

“And that’s not to say it wasn’t difficult. I had full-blown panic attacks and PTSD for weeks after the accident,” she revealed.

Raegan Revord shared a slideshow of pictures to her Instagram, with the last being a vehicle with disabled airbags.

“The only way I was able to get through it was because of the most loving and supporting cast and crew,” Revord wrote. 

“They checked in with me along the way and never made me feel like finishing filming was a priority, that my well being (sic) came first,” she added.
