Charlie Sheen Is Crazy

Charlie Sheen in March 2009

Image via Wikipedia

I’m still reading this Charlie Sheen crap, and I hate myself for doing it, but it’s like trying not to watch a train wreck going on in front of your eyes. I notice that there have been new interviews where Charlie calls himself a genius, asks for a 50% pay raise, says he’s Adonis, and that other people aren’t like him because they don’t have “tiger blood.”

He’s tired of people not recognizing how special he is. No doubt, this is a reaction to the AA term, “terminal uniqueness.” He knocks AA, and this is because they supposedly have only a 5% success rate. He says he cured himself with the power of his mind, because, apparently, that’s how Charlie rolls. I don’t know AA’s success rate, but…high or low, it’s the only treatment that’s successful. And it works if you work it. But you can’t quit going to meetings and quit working the steps and start drinking and using and expect for it to work by osmosis.

Charlie’s publicist has left him now, and it was really the only smart choice the man could possibly make. Otherwise, he looks like the twit who advised Charlie to spout off at the mouth in his current state.

Charlie won’t get help until he hits bottom, and maybe not even then. The problem is that if he’s talking like this and he is indeed sober, as he says he is, then he’s got bigger problems than just addiction. I read comments all over the internet where people have no compassion for this guy, and he is a selfish ass. But does it never occur to anyone but me that maybe, just maybe Charlie Sheen has some real mental illness beyond just drug addiction here. I mean, we’re talking about the kind of guy who thought the government conspired to cause 9/11…when he was sober.

I think Sheen needs a full psychiatric evaluation, not just a stay in some pampered resort for addicted celebrities. I think Sheen needs to be fired, permanently. Let’s not pussy foot around it. Fire his ass. Make him get help. And even though I think Charlie Sheen is acting like a tool, it’s just plain wrong to fail to have compassion for one of our fellow human beings, especially if he’s actually mentally ill. It’s not a choice. Why do we act like it is?

    Charlie Sheen is a worthless piece of shit. He needs to be dropped into the middle of the desert for about a year, with nothing more than food and water. I used to like him, but all I can say now, is: Get your @#$%^& life together, you moron.
    The world does not revolve around you and whoever told it did should be shot at sunrise. And if you don’t clean up your pathetic life, you should be also.

      I agree that the world does not revolve around Charlie Sheen, and his actions are reprehensible. My point with this blog post is that maybe, just maybe he’s exhibiting the classic signs of a mental illness, in particular, bipolar disorder. Can’t we have some compassion for the mentally ill, even if their actions are not something we can feel any sympathy for at all.

    I think you are right. With my limited knowledge from a psych degree, I think he has a mental illness. I hope we don’t see his name on next year’s Oscar memorial.

    Charlie is definitely losing it or lost it. His outrageous statements and behavior indicate he needs help right now. and by the way, Charlie that lying AA group saved my life. You might have hindered someone else from getting help because of your derogatory remarks. I know mental illness and substance abuse and pal you are suffering for one or both. GET HELP!!!

      He’s been losing it for a long time. None of this is new. The same accusations that Brooke Mueller made have been made against him by Denise Richards. The violence against women dates at least as far back as Kelly Preston being “accidentally” shot by Charlie when they were engaged many, many years ago. It was an “accident,” but you’ll notice that she didn’t stay with him after that. Charlie Sheen has a substance abuse problem, but that’s not Charlie Sheen’s only problem. Insane people never question their sanity. That is certainly the case with Charlie. He won’t get help on his own. Someone, whether family, friend, or state needs to intervene before it’s too late. I am at least heartened by the fact that he’s been removed from his children. He’s a danger to himself and others.

    I doubt Brooke Mueller is any more sane or clean than he is at this point. She is in rehab for four hours everyday. Not to mention that she voluntarily went on the trip to the Bahamas with the other Goddesess and even took pics with them. As usual, the kids will be the ones to suffer.
