Charlie Sheen Claims His ‘Tiger Blood’ Phase Was Result of ‘Roid Rage’ from Testosterone Cream

  Charlie Sheen Claims His ‘Tiger Blood’ Phase Was Result of ‘Roid Rage’ from Testosterone Cream Charlie Sheen claims that his use of testosterone cream contributed to his bizarre behavior after being fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011. In an interview with Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan, the 51-year-old actor opened up about his HIV diagnosis and reflected on his phase in which he gave a series of bizarre interviews, including claiming he had “tiger blood.” “It’s fun to kind of watch sometimes but also just a little bit cringeable,” Sheen said of his headline-grabbing past interviews. “It’s like, ‘Dude, what the hell was that?’ ” Sheen explained that he was using testosterone cream to “get the old libido up” during that time period. “It metabolizes into basically a roid rage,” he said. Although Sheen says he’s in a better place now, he doesn’t deny that the man who went on rants about doing more drugs than “anybody could survive” is still in him. “I think ultimately in our blueprint, in our DNA, I believe that we are the sum total of all of our experiences, good and bad,” Sheen shared. The actor, who publicly shared he had HIV in November 2015, has come a long way since being diagnosed with the disease four years ago. “The day I was diagnosed, I immediately wanted to eat a bullet,” Sheen said. “But my mom was there, I wouldn’t do that in front of her, or let her find me to clean up that mess.” “But then, something else came over me,” he continued. “They gave me a handful of pills and said, ‘You can go home now, and you’re going to live.

Charlie Sheen says he caught HIV because he was irresponsible but has denied that the diagnosis pushed him to the brink of suicide . Sheen said he was in 'denial' and 'shock' after he was diagnosed with HIV in May 2011. 'I've never been that guy,' he said. 'And I never considered it before the diagnosis .' Sheen broke the news of his HIV diagnosis last month on the 'Today' show. RELATED ARTICLES.

Charlie Sheen has penned an open letter after confirming on the Today Show that he’s HIV positive. The Two and a Half Men actor, 50, revealed that he sought refuge in booze and drugs after the diagnosis calling it a ‘ suicide run’. During the interview with Matt Lauer and in his open letter he claimed that he had been blackmailed out of millions by ‘desperate charlatans’.

The former Two and a Half Men star went public with his health struggle in late 2015, revealing he had been dealing with the condition in secret for the past four years.

He has since enrolled in an experimental new drug trial which he believes has suppressed his illness, and he told U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, "I feel really good."

However, Charlie initially thought his life was doomed after hearing the doctor utter the letters "HIV", and he would have committed suicide had it not been for the presence of his mother, actress Janet Sheen.

"The day I was diagnosed, I immediately wanted to eat a bullet," he confessed. "But my mum was there, I wouldn't do that in front of her, or let her find me to clean up that mess."

The 51-year-old quickly learned living with HIV wouldn't be as bad as he had imagined, thanks to the developments of modern medicine, and his current participation in a months-long Food and Drug Administration (FDA) study for a drug known as PRO-140 has worked wonders for Sheen.

Action needed on indigenous suicide: chief

  Action needed on indigenous suicide: chief OTTAWA - Nishnawbe Aski Nation Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler is calling for a national suicide strategy following the deaths of two 12-year-old girls from a remote First Nation in northern Ontario. Wapekeka First Nation, a tiny community of about 360 people, is located 600 kilometres due north of Thunder Bay. Fiddler, whose organization represents 49 Ontario First Nation communities, wants to see the federal government and the province develop an emergency plan to address community concerns.He made the same call last January, recommending a special response team to address grave suicide concerns in other remote indigenous communities, such as Attawapiskat First Nation.

Charlie Sheen spoke about the " suicide run" that followed his HIV diagnosis in a letter detailing four years of treatment, debauchery and extortion. In his letter, the actor reiterated several points, such as the cluster headaches that hospitalized him in the first place and rigid treatment regimen he began after discovering he was HIV -positive. "Not missing a beat, a med dose, or one shred of guidance, quickly my viral loads became undetectable," Sheen wrote.

‘I wanted to eat a bullet’ Charlie Sheen ’s HIV diagnosis drove him to brink of suicide . CHARLIE Sheen considered taking his own life in the fallout from discovering he was HIV positive. The Two And A Half Men actor revealed on Good Morning America that he hit rock bottom after the diagnosis went public. "The day I was diagnosed , I immediately wanted to eat a bullet," he told host Michael Strahan. "But my mom was there, I wouldn't do that in front of her, or let her find me and clean up that mess."

"(It's) in the late stages of its trial run," he said. "We are very close to being approved."

He explained, "It's not this hideous cocktail (of drugs) that leads to so many side effects and just so much disdain, you know, emotionally and physically - it's one shot a week. It's going well... I feel like I'm carrying the torch for a lot of folks out there that are suffering from the same thing."

Charlie insists he still has some down days, but he is determined to remain positive about his future.

"Like all of us, some days are better than others, but most days are pretty frickin' (sic) cool," he shared. "I walk out into the world and it's warm hugs and compliments (from the public); there's nothing but love (for me) out there right now."

The public's opinion of Sheen has come a long way since his days of heavy partying, particularly during his infamous "tiger blood" phase in 2011, at the height of his wild behaviour.

The actor previously blamed his controversial ways on his use of testosterone cream during that period, and he is still amazed at how "bizarre" his media interviews were at the time: "It's fun to kind of watch sometimes, but also just a little bit cringeable," he smiled. "It's like, 'Dude, what the hell was that?'"
