The 50-year-old star recently admitted he’s contracted the virus and although he was initially in a state of denial about his condition, Charliehas now turned his attention to combating HIV.
He shared: “I was angry. I was in denial. I was in shock.”
Asked who he was angry at, the former Two and a Half Men star told Radar Online:
“Myself, the world. But that didn’t last long. It was shortly afterwards – I think it was the second day – I said to my mom, ‘This disease picked the wrong guy.’
“If anybody can fight this thing and discover a cure, it’s me. I will exhaust every resource available to me. I will sit with every expert. I will move forward until something’s revealed.”
Despite feeling angry about his situation, Charlie insists he has never considered committing suicide.
“I didn’t, no, and I never considered it before the diagnosis. I’ve never been that guy.
I’ve always said if somebody’s gonna kill themselves, they should jump off a building. It’s pretty sure-fire! Slashed wrists are usually just a cry for help.”
