Charlie Sheen Accepts 'The Gift of Being Alive' After HIV Diagnosis

Charlie Sheen is opening up about living with HIV.

The 51-year-old actor spoke an awareness event last night in Hollywood where he promoted the HIV injectable treatment PRO 140.

Charlie – who announced he was HIV positive back in 2015 - praised the treatment saying he has felt “no side effects” and said that he’s “started to feel back to myself again and back in touch with all aspects of my life.”

“When I was first diagnosed, I knew it wasn’t a death sentence but it was just a giant frickin’ bummer,” Charlie said. “I accept the gift of being alive. I could run and hide from this whole thing and not be outspoken and honest and open about it, but I’ve chosen a path that’s the opposite.”
