Charlie Sheen Reveals He Contemplated Suicide Following HIV Diagnosis

'I wanted to eat a bullet,' says the 51-year-old actor, who publicly revealed in late 2015 that he had been diagnosed as HIV positive for four years.

AceShowbiz - Charlie Sheen admits he contemplated suicide upon learning that he was diagnosed as HIV positive. In an interview with Michael Strahan on "Good Morning America" which was aired on ABC Wednesday, January 11, the 51-year-old actor revealed he wanted to kill himself, but his mom stopped him.

"I feel really good. I am so grateful," Sheen began. "The day I was diagnosed, I immediately wanted to eat a bullet," he recalled. The "Two and a Half Men" alum added, "My mom was there, I wouldn't do that in front of her, or let her find me to clean up that mess."

He further explained how he's helping other people living with the infection. "I feel like I'm carrying the torch for a lot of folks out there that are suffering from the same thing," he said. "Some days are better than others, but most days are pretty f**king cool," he shared, adding that he gets lots of "warm hugs" and "compliments" from strangers.

During the interview, Sheen also revealed that he's currently trying a new drug which means he only needs to inject it once a week. "I'm so grateful for what was available when it happened," he told Strahan. "And even more grateful for what's available right now, when I'm, I'm in the middle of it, you know?"

Sheen told Strahan he had undergone a "roid rage." "I was doing too much testosterone cream," the former "Anger Management" star said. "It's not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body," he added. "I'm different. I just have a different constitution, a different brain, a different heart, I've got tiger blood man."
