Charlie Sheen Is Not Crazy &:"I have a disease? Bullshit. I cured it with my brain."

First the necessities.

I am not a medical professional, I am not a Psychologist (although I will be at the conclusion of my degree program).  No reputable medical professional will make an official diagnosis of a person without having met with them in person.  The opinions stated are mine alone, and do not reflect anything other than my opinion.  

For the past few days we have all seen what most of us think is Charlie Sheen having gone batshit crazy.  For an actor with a history of not quite so polite behavior – he seems to have gone over and above his typical hijinks into psychotic break territory.  The man appears to have lost control of the filter that allows us to move in ‘polite’ society.  That doesn’t mean that he is crazy though.  Let’s look at some of what he has said in the past couple of weeks:


“It’s funny how sheep rhymes with sleep.”

Many of us are sleep walking through life.  I know because it was me for a very long time.  In this day & time of live & let live, and don’t rock the boat many of us sleep walk through life.  I was having a conversation on Twitter with someone and while they were trying to get me to show them my boobs, they shared, that they hated their job, hated their life, hated being single. My response: change it.

We can sit back and allow life to happen or we can create life.


“The scoreboard doesn’t lie. Never has.”   “Can’t is the cancer of happen.”

 Everything within our lives we have the power to control, our health, our wealth, our happiness, our destiny.  We can choose to watch others achieve or we can step up and get some ourselves.  


“It’s been a tsunami. And I’ve been riding it on a mercury surfboard.” “I’ve been a veteran of the unspeakable.”

 As you visit Vizionz you will find that I am a person who has been through some shit.  Others may or may not have had it worse, but that doesn’t negate that I’ve been to the end and back and I am still standing here.  For every ‘horror’ story I will eventually share with you – someone can top it.  Easily.  I am at a point in my life though that I am not willing to allow the events of yesterday to infringe on today and tomorrow.  That would make me a victim and I am not interested in being a victim.  It is not always the simplest thing to do, but right now I am holding on tight and going WEEEEE as life tosses it’s best at me.  To keep it real, before I was introduced to Buddhism I would just go to bed and cry.  Keeping it even MORE real, there are still moments that I go to bed and cry.  But I don’t stay there and that is the difference.  That is why constant reader, one day you will be reading Vizionz from a Kindle, or paying $10 to see it in IMAX.


“I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total, bitchin’ rock star from Mars.”

When did we as a people decide that aspiring to be average was something that should be hot in the streets?  When we stifle our talents, we blend in.  If everyone is blending then who is standing out and giving us the example to strive for?  Would you rather be Allen Iverson?  or Eric Snow?  If you are special and you know it clap your hands *clap clap*  being one of many is not something to be proud of – especially if you could be one in a billion.  Think about it – then act on it.

I pray that Charlie gets the help he truly appears to need.  In the meantime – while his filter is off – maybe we should listen to him.  Right now he is making sense.
