Talking about his battle with the illness, Bonaduce said, “I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t keep my balance. I slurred really badly. I was afraid of everything. I was afraid of my stairs for God’s sake — I was hoping for a diagnosis but did not get one.”
Though the cause of the illness remains a mystery, the actor has previously been open about his issues with addiction, including in the reality series “Breaking Bonaduce”.
