A gaunt-looking, chain-smoking Charlie Sheen posted an online rant where he announced he wants to publish a new book called "Apocalypse Me."
Wearing a Yankee sweatshirt, a disheveled Sheen puffed on cigarettes and chugged from a bottle as he filmed himself talking to a colleague on speakerphone.

I saw him last night on livestream. He looked like beat-up s***.
That being said, I find it disgusting the way society mobs around him to gawk, prod, and mock a person who's very obviously suffering a bi-polar breakdown.
He’s winning on Charlie Sheen planet and universe. Also he did score a KILLER pink slip.
It’s more than mental illness, I have sympathy for anyone suffering from mental illness, but not for a meth alcoholic!
Especially not for someone doing this to themself!
This poor guy is 45 years of age and looks 65. If something is not done, I believe he will be dead in a very short time.
Prayers up for your son and your entire family which must be suffering.
It is an illness as real as any cancer, which is why the reaction is so disturbing. It's akin to people pointing and laughing at a man who's on fire.
Fortunately, here on FR, the sentiment seems to be relatively compassionate. A breath of fresh air.
I think Sheen has a psychiatric disorder... it’s sociopath. My brother, may he rest in peace, was just like him. He’s just let drugs and alcohol take over his mind. He’s selfish and possessive and thinks he is entitled to enjoy his life the way he sees fit, for good or bad. My brother was the same way, misogynist, alcohol, drugs, wild anti social behavior, fits of rage, thinking everybody was out to get him, in and out of jail or prison all his life, never held a job longer than a year or two. My brother was diagnosed as a sociopath at age 13 and never changed. His lifestyle never changed and it eventually killed him. .....
“I find it disgusting the way society mobs around him to gawk, prod, and mock a person who’s very obviously suffering a bi-polar breakdown. “
To be fair, he’s the one putting himself out there on all sorts of media.
If he was ignored and then did himself in, there might be complaints that he was ignored. It’s sort of a can’t win situation.
I’ve got a friend who’s been fighting bipolar/drugs for 5 years.
I don’t know why they don’t........I guess it makes money for someone. But it is disturbing to have to witness this.
I always wonder, what comes first, the drug abuse or the crazy?
The schizophrenic/bipolar/manic types I have known have always used drugs heavily. At least in their past.
Do the drugs make them crazy, or, do they start using drugs to control an already crazy mind?
I’ve heard arguments on both sides and really don’t know.
I just hope when he kills himself he does not have on that nice Yankee sweatshirt.
An actor can write?
Heck, the last actor of that caliper was Reagan (wrote his own speeches).
Hmmmm, maybe THAT’s why Reagan’s speeches are still worth listening to, and the Obama-butt’s speeches should be flushed at the first opportunity.
My brother was diagnosed as a sociopath at 13, 1969-70, before drugs were commonly available at any elementary school. His behavior was always ‘bad’ even as a small child. Drugs were an addition to that behavior when he reached late teens. He would steal money from mom’s purse, steal her valium, steal her cigs and steal the alcohol we had in the house. He, in my opinion, was born that way..................
Hugs to you. I know where you are coming from. My dh and I went bankrupt attempting to help our son diagnosed with bipolar. After 9 hospitalizations in a 4 year time period and a stint homeless, he finally recovered enough to turn his life around. Now he is doing as well as can be expected and has even managed to hold down a job, marry and become a responsible parent.
And it brings back frightening memories because I too see his old behavior in Charlie Sheen.
I've said it before, he's at least a narcissist & has visions of grandeur about himself. There is a fine line between narcissist & sociopath, so could be either. Narcissists have an addictive personality, to drugs, alcohol & sex.

Probably Thunderbird or Night Train.
Oh, OK. I new he had an illness while filming. Thanks!
