Tony’s first blog post

Ok here it goes. This will be my first post on my blog. My Name Is Tony Armen.  I am soon to be 66 years old. I was born on October 16 1951, in Cagliari Italy.  My Birth Mother refused me at birth or at least that is what I am told.  I spent the first 5 years of my life in an orphanage run by nuns. I have very little memory of that time of my life other than a deep feeling of unhappiness.  Also a scar on my left cheek which I am told another child in the orphanage tried to put my eye out. Why I can’t remember anything up to the age of five has always bothered me. I suppose I have mentally blocked that part of my life out. I have often thought of trying hypnosis to see if I could retrieve some memories but I don’t even know if that kind of hypnosis is possible.

I have wanted to put down my thoughts on my life for quite some time. Not because I have had a particularly interesting life. I have not. I suppose it is vanity or a desire for my children to understand me better. these posts will be deeply personal for me.


One thought on “Tony’s first blog post

  1. Hello, Tony. Only you can tell your story-its ups, its downs, its highs, its lows, its joys, its sorrows, your hopes, and your dreams. Only you can give an idea to your children about your own childhood and the life which has been yours. They in turn will pass your stories on to your grandchildren, who will pass it on to future generations. Keep on writing and being your own voice. Best of luck!
