US actor Charlie Sheen reveals he is HIV positive
“I am here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive,” Sheen, 50, said on the NBC morning talk show “Today.”
Sheen said he has known of his illness for about four years and that when he first started feeling sick it was so bad he thought he had a brain tumor.

“Its a hard three letters to absorb, you know? “It’s a turning point in one’s life,” Sheen said.
