<p><span></span>After weeks of erratic behavior, <strong>Charlie Sheen</strong> finally admits--in an interview with<em> Life & Style</em>--that he's falling apart.<br />
"I'm really starting to lose my mind," he confesses to Life & Style. I'm ready to call anyone to help."
It's a shocking turnaround --the first sign of vulnerability he's shown throughout this whole circuslike period. But when estranged wife Brooke Mueller was granted temporary custody of their 2-year-old twins, Max and Bob, it sent Charlie into a tailspin. "She can't keep them from me," Charlie tells Life & Style. "I won't let her -- I'll do anything to get them back."
And he's apparently become so desperate and ravaged by the effects of addiction, his words are becoming more and more frightening.
"I'm really trying to contain myself right now," Charlie tells Life & Style. "My lawyer wants to come over to my house and take the bullets out of my gun."
Loved ones fear that having his kids taken away along with the news of being fired from Two and a Half Men could push him over the edge. "It's crazy over here at the house," says a source who was with him on March 7, the day the news broke. "Charlie's losing it. He's really mad about the show, and dealing with the kids and Brooke is getting to be too much. Charlie is a ticking time bomb, and we all fear he could do something drastic like committing suicide or falling back on hard drugs."
Another insider agrees, "Anything could happen at any minute. He's a danger to himself -- a really big danger."
