Charlie Sheen has had a tough 2015, with rumors of the former Two and a Half Men star being HIV positive coming to the front, and then, he confirmed the rumors on a talk show. However, there is another confession Sheen made recently on The Dr. Oz Show. The story goes back to 2011 when Sheen was not being his usual self. He had started to use rather strange terminology, including Tiger Blood, Sober Valley Lodge, Adonis DNA, Duh, Winning, and several other strange phrases.

It had been reported that Sheen had to take a trip to the rehab, and Two and a Half Men was on a hiatus for that while.
Now, Charlie has finally revealed what caused him to behave erratically. He said he felt very “out of body,” and he was not really tuned into “reality.”
“That was a very specific period of time that did feel very out of body and very, just detached from all things real,” he told Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show. “I felt superhuman during some of that. It was a lot of highs and lows.”
He said he was using some sort of a cream that contained testosterone.

“I was taking a lot of testosterone cream and I think I went too far with it,” he revealed on the show. “It was, kind of, like, a borderline, not a ‘roid rage, but a ‘roid disengage.”
So, what are these Testosterone creams and are they used widely? And if so, what are the risks? A New England Journal of Medicine study said that men on testosterone replacement therapy had more than four times the number of cardiovascular problems.
In children, exposure to testosterone gels can cause premature puberty. The medical experts say that the normal “T” level may differ for all men. The Atlantic says that several topical products available in the market should not be used without doctor’s advice. Most of these creams are now being “thrown around like water”.
However, not all behavior can be attributed to the cream. The actor also claimed he just wanted to keep everyone entertained.
“It was so silly and people took it so seriously,” he told Matt Lauer in an interview on Today in September 2011. “I figured, all right, I’ll continue to give the people what they want, you know?” Sheen added, according to E Online.
Charlie Sheen was recently accused by his ex, Denise Richards, of threatening his wife and daughter. Ms. Richards filed a $1.2 million lawsuit against him, saying he sent a text that said, “Your dad s a rock star genius… Your mom is a p–s wart.”

Sheen, however, admitted that he may have sent the text.
“I don’t know. Sure. I probably did. Yeah. And it’s regrettable,” he told Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show.
But Sheen denied telling Lola, his daughter, “I’m going to kill you and I’m going to kill your mom.” He goes on to say that he would never threaten their mom.
He defended himself and said he would never talk about his children that way. “I would never speak about any of my children like that ever,” Sheen, 50, told Oz. “And I would never threaten their mom. That’s not who I am. I wouldn’t do that.”

Richard also alleged that she was not being given all the financial support promised by Charlie Sheen. But Sheen said he had been giving $55,000-a-month child support to Richards and Brooke Mueller. He had said that there were a lot of extortion, and he had to pay a lot of money to keep the HIV-positive diagnosis a secret.
“We came up with a number a long time ago and I had a great job and everybody was living large. and that’s not the case right now, but there’s still that expectation to still keep paying this kind of money,” Sheen told Oz. “At some point you just can’t justify it, especially when there’s no gratitude behind it. None. I would send somebody flowers every hour if I got that kind of dough tax free.”
