The reason behind the death of Patty

Patty died at the age of 69 due to Sepsis from a ruptured intestine at Coeur D’Alene, Idaho

It was her son Sean who made the announcement of her death on local television in Los Angeles

Patty was going through Bipolar disorder

In an interview, the late actress revealed about going through bipolar disorder, where she said the manifestations started to show themselves, the mood swings and the irritability during the disorder. 

In her early 20s, she resisted. She was adamant that there was nothing wrong with her, but at the age of 35, a low point came for the actress. 

She said she went to a professional as she was diagnosed with manic depression, as back then, bipolar disorder used to call manic depression. 

The actor claimed she liked manic depression because it feels how it sounds, but bipolar came about to be softened for her. 

The actress said both of them were the same thing. She said she was wonderful in front of the American public, but at home, she was outrageous in her anger. 

Importance of family and friends, according to Patty

The late actress Patty Duke once said in her interview that family and friends are the unsung heroes because they are the ones who get most of the garbage of our out-of-control personality when we’re not treated. 

She said it’s a terrible burden that we put on parents and children, and in a perfect world, we could go to the doctor just as we would with diabetes and follow the doctor's recommendation, and we may not be more of us now than 30 years ago but it needs to become as easy and natural as any other kind of illness.
