Charlie Sheen HIV Positive: Father Martin Sheen all praise for his son’s courage

Parents are always expected to come to the rescue of their children. Whether the kids are small or grown up. They
tend to ignore many of their shortcomings and always try to focus on their positives.

The same seems to be true about Charlie Sheen, the much maligned Hollywood superstar who recently revealed to the world that he is HIV Positive and that he was told about it some four years ago.

His father, Martin Sheen, also an actor has come to the defense of his son who has is known more for his sexual escapades than his acting skills. I am not downplaying his acting, he is a good actor, nonetheless it is scandals involving him that have got him more press than his acting skills.

Charlie Sheen’s father has come out in his support and has praised his son’s courage to tell the world that he is HIV Positive. Despite being HIV Positive, the actor is quite healthy and is not suffering from AIDS.

After confessing on live TV, the actor wrote an open letter describing what he suffered. “Roughly four years ago, I suddenly found myself in the throws of a seismic and debilitating three-day cluster-migraine like headache. I was emergently hospitalized with what I believed to be a brain tumor or perhaps some unknown pathology. I was partially correct. Following a battery of endless tests, that included a hideous spinal tap, it was sadly and shockingly revealed to me that I was, in fact, positive for HIV…The news was a ‘mule kick’ to my soul. Those impossible words I absorbed and then tried to convince myself, that I was stuck, suspended, or even stranded inside some kind of alternate reality or nightmare, were to the absolute contrary. I was awake. It was true… reality”, says he in the confession letter.

In the meantime his father said that it was a tough decision to confess. “”He had been leading up to this sort of story for several months and we kept encouraging him to do it…But he kept backing away and back away because it was like going to his own execution, I guess…It was the most difficult thing he’s ever done…We didn’t know until he walked on the set that he was going to do it.

He also said that Sheen was not the only one to suffer drug abuse. “As a father, I dare say that if I were to ask, just a general question in this room, how many of you have children or spouses or nieces, nephews, uncles, clients, who are dealing with drugs or alcohol. I dare say that there isn’t a person in here that wouldn’t raise their hand”, asked Charlie Sheen’s father.
