SHARE Charlie Sheen on HIV status: ‘A mule kick to my soul’

After announcing he is HIV positive on the “Today” show, Hollywood star Charlie Sheen released an open letter.

“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 letter begins.
