Charlee Sheen and Back A'Cha

It's impossible not to follow what's going on with Charlie Sheen.  He's talking a lot, to anyone who will listen.  A patient asked me to please blog about it, but I have to tell you.  I just don't have time.  Not right now.  And as luck would have it, a colleague did the job for me, and I trust Dr. Deb's assessment.  We don't need to reinvent the wheel.

All I might add is that if Mr. Sheen is sober for the first time, then yes, a manic episode might indeed follow, if  this is what is wrong, if he has Bi-polar Disorder.  Some people are uni-polar, you know, and this tends to refer to depression, but I have met a few unipolar manics in my life.  Not knowing his history, I can't say what Charlie has, not for sure, but what Dr. Deb says about mania is spot on.

Just because I have no time to write, doesn't mean you should suffer.  So here's an old fashioned Back A'Cha, links to people who link to me.  Or just to people I like.  If I left you out, email me.  Please.  You know I hate it when anyone's mad at me.

Thank you for the link!

Whatever is going on with Charlie Sheen makes me just plain sad. Here is a great post about the situation from a mother who recently lost her son due (in part) to an overdose:

You're welcome all.
I don't think I can stop changing colors. It's just too much fun.

I mean, could anyone wear colors like these? But don't you just want to sometimes?

Cheryl said...

I'm glad you're having fun. And I DO dress like this sometimes. The clothes used in the following post are mine. Yes I wear bright orange shorts often in the summer, and I can pull it off too. http://uppity-crip.blogspot.com/2011/02/national-medicaid-budget-cuts-news.html

SO many resources I need to explore! Thank you for all the links, TD.

Mine included. ;)

Nice article, thanks for the information.

I blogged a bit about Sheen last night. Mostly it was about his rant on AA. It would help if Charlie would stick with the winners and learn something from the 5% who did "get it".

I like the zesty colors! Brightens up my head.

Thank you for Dr. Deb's link. I read the post and found it to be pretty accurate, from what I know of bi-polar disorder, having lived with one who was diagnosed with it.

Thank you for linking me. :)

The media seems to be exacerbating his emotional and mental state with their interviews of him.

Thanks for the link!

I think Sheen is manic, has been self-medicating to keep his BPD somewhat managed for years...just my outsider's opinion. Also, classically, when people are first sober they often get a LOT worse emotionally. One factor in so many relapses. I hope and pray his being so famous and conspicuous doesn't interfere with getting honest and good treatment that will help him get better.
