Char­lie Sheen is set to write his au­to­bi­og­ra­phy

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

The 50-year-old ac­tor re­vealed he is HIV pos­i­tive ear­lier this week, and since his con­fes­sion on the ‘To­day’ show, his man­ager Mark Burg has re­port­edly been “buried with of­fers” from pub­lish­ers who are des­per­ate for the ‘Anger Man­age­ment’ star to tell his colour­ful life story. The for­mer ‘Two and a Half Men’ ac­tor re­vealed he had been di­ag­nosed with the dis­ease four years ago af­ter ini­tially be­liev­ing he had a brain tu­mour. He said: “I thought based on mi­graines and clus­ter headaches and sweat­ing the bed for nights in a row that I had a brain tu­mour. I thought it was over. Af­ter a bat­tery of tests they told me this is what’s go­ing on. It’s a hard three let­ters to ab­sorb, it’s a turn­ing point in one’s life.” And Char­lie also hopes that go­ing pub­lic with his di­ag­no­sis will help to re­duce the stigma sur­round­ing HIV. He said: “I have a re­spon­si­bil­ity now to bet­ter my­self and to help a lot of other peo­ple and hope­fully with what we’re do­ing to­day oth­ers will come for­ward and say, ‘thanks Char­lie, thanks for kick­ing the door open’.
