It’s ok, I already know how everyone feels about Charlie, he’s a moron, I get it. But at the same time, I can’t help but be a bit jealous of the man. Obviously not now considering his illness (I wouldn’t wish HIV on anyone). I mean, back in the day when he was insane. His stupidity made him oblivious to the bad shit that was happening to his body, and he had more then enough money to stop giving a fuck what people thought.
I mean, that’s about as close as you get to freedom in this world. In a way, like his catchphrase, he was kind of winning at life.
That is, if your version of winning is living your life on crack, having two ex strippers as wives and a huge bank account. Because in all honesty, if it were me in his position, I’d probably be on the same path, because that kind of freedom, that pure irresponsibility and delusion to your actions or surroundings, sound like fucking bliss to me.
A lot of celebrities do drugs, that’s a given, but Charlie Sheen is the only celebrity that (used to) believe that his drug taking was an achievement. It is almost ridiculous how irresponsible and impulsive he is. I’ve been diagnosed with Bipolar before and I am bpd, I’ve had drug issues and I am still pretty impulsive and irresponsible, and I know for a fact that normal people don’t act that way. So there is no denying he’s not normal, and it seems pretty realistic to assume he’s bipolar.
But in his eyes he’s bi-winning, lol. I think if I had that much money then I could see myself being pretty happy in my denial of reality, main one being my health which most diagnosed with a mental illness tend to deny (it also must have really pushed him back down to earth when he was diagnosed with HIV). I bet now, for the first time in his life, he has to face his mortality which he clearly forgot he had hence getting fucked up all the time and having unprotected sex.
I wonder if he’s winning now. I wonder how he’d be with his illness as well as mental disorder without all the money. I wonder what he’d be like living in the real world. Probably about as ‘winning’ as the rest of us are with a mental illness.
I personally think Charlie Sheen is hillarious though. A tragic, funny, pathetic comedy, just in his very existence. Here is a tribute song to some of the funniest shit that he has said in recent years.
You borrow my brain for 5 seconds, and just be like, “Dude, can’t handle it, unplug this bastard.” because it fires in a way that is, I don’t know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.
