I just thought i'd share, if anyone hasn't seen it yet the interview of Charlie Sheen. I don't really take much notice of celebs much, I find it all boring but I decided to watch this.

Thoughts?

Also, how the lady (I don't know her name) said that people think he may be 'bipolar', what do you think of his reaction/response to that question?

I have to be honest, when he said the 'bi-winning' I laughed so much, I don't even know why.

Hell yeah! I cheered when he tossed the AA book on the floor. Chuck NEEDS no higher power. Chuck IS higher power. He's high because he mainlines CHARLIE FREAKING SHEEN, ladies! WINNING!

"If you're a part of my family, I will love you violently."

Haha yes! I really enjoy watching him on Two and a Half Men, it's a favourite in my household. I do hope all the negativity surrounding him in the media cuts down soon.

I'm gonna have to check out his show now. I do think the negativity will die down (way faster than Mel Gibson), because you have got to respect the man's standpoint. He wasn't demeaning, offensive, or angry. He is living in the moment and being mindful. Go DBT!!! :P

true, altho quite a beast of a man during this interview, he is clearly showing signs of mania.

im glad that he has his own style, but he totally is kind of out of his mind when he says things like "i probably took more than anyone could survive?" "how do you survive that?" "cause im me"

"i exposed people to magic"

I normally find him somewhat handsome, but in that interview he looks gaunt. I wonder when he last slept? Tdoc and I actually talked about him today - we both feel he's exhibiting clear signs of mania, and she wishes that they weren't putting him on TV during what seems to her to be a crisis. I guess, to me, I don't think he's acting right now. I think he's trying to be funny - or probably believes he's hillarious - but I worry about him. I hope he doesn't believe he has other supernatural powers, I mean believing he is special because he's survived massive amounts of drugs is one thing, but what if he's driving and suddenly believes he can fly? I just hope he survives through this time. I feel so bad for him when he suggests she try being in his brain for just 5 minutes, and how hard it is to be there.

I have seen a few mins of several interviews. He seems painfully ill, stoned, and just a total mess. I feel soooo sorry for his children, his ex wives, Martin Sheen, and all the people who have tried to help this dude. He is self destructing. Self destructing in a major way. Maybe Robert Downey Jr. and Dr. Drew can kidnap him for six months of inpatient. Because his future is death, not life. And the middle aged body does not cope as well with extreme substance abuse. No, his body will give out at some point.

I am with BPLB on this one ..I am traumatized watching him thinking about the pathology of his mental illness ...and the coke and the booze and what maybe insurmountable problems brought on by both..he showed EXTREME behavior not just manic he is a complete fking mess that guy

I am torn between thinking it is a funny show and being pissed at the reality aspect of all the folks who encouraged him to continue on this path since it was "expected" of him I think that show is the glorification of his self distruction and this is not a good thing...

I worry also about the kid on the show ..no matter how much you try to shield them kids are traumatized by this kind of behavior and I have noticed on his show the past couple of years he has looked very gaunt to me

how many times can we knock the shit out ourselves and keep getting up?

he is about to show us isnt he ..someone in that house is going to come home finding him in a coma or worse one day

he has no insight at this time because there is no room in his brain for it ..he is consumed by mental illness and addiction and that is just fucking tragic as shit to me

I don't know how to dx anyone, let alone someone on drugs and over the tv. I don't like that the public jumps to the conclusion of mi to explain all erratic behavior. I'm not saying he's not bipolar, I just don't know.

He really doesn't look well and I hope he gets proper treatment.

I would never presume he was "anything" btw but it is quite obvious he is mentally ill and drugs are either exacerbating it or causing it ..but as far as calling him "bipolar" I can not say that at all I dont know either.... I just know he is one fucked up dude and this is a tragic story playing out in front of us ..my brother has worked with him and said "it is only a matter of time" abnd that his "people have encouraged this for ages now are mad because he is so out of control" ...my brother has a duel diagnosis but has been sober for over 25years now !!!! YAY!!!

..and I wish Charlie and his family well having been through similar in our family it is really a rough road until they are gone then when they are gone you have all these "what if's" in your brain ...my husband grafted sister killed herself in a very similar manner she was mentally ill and had a horrific drug and booze problem she was briefly "well" on the right cocktail and had given up drinking and drugging for a few years but then the "demon voices" came back and told her to drink ..seriously she had the "others" telling her to self distruct ..so she did

many many people are hard to sort of "tease out " I guess you would say when addiction and mental illness are so tightly bound it is hard to find a path to begin on ..getting the addiction under control when your mental health is off the wall is not any easier than visa versa...

very very tragic long aftermath of guilt for all of us ...up to her death is was horrible to watch her then when she died we died as an intact "family" she really left a tragic story

I don't have the experience you do with dual diagnosis. Maybe it is obvious to everyone else but me that he definately has a mi along with the drug use. I do agree that it's a tragic situation and I'm sorry for your loss.

That's great that your brother is doing so well

The rates of dual-diagnosis are extremely high. People abuse drugs for a reason.

that is just fucking tragic as shit to me

I feel the same way.

He may not have been demeaning, offensive, or angry here, but it wasn't that long ago that he had that porn star chick scared enough to lock herself in the hotel bathroom, I think because he'd tried to choke her, or something. And isn't there still an unresolved domestic violence charge against him in Colorado?
