Betsy Turnbull, Moving ForwardLibrary: Old Town Library
Fourteen years ago Betsy Turnbull went through a very difficult divorce and lost everything. She then turned to alcohol for relief which slowly devastated her life even more.
She spent nine months in jail, which was largely her choosing, and has now been homeless for a year. But she is “slowly clawing my way back to a somewhat normal life.”
Betsy is open to talking about her experience and showing how a well-educated, accomplished person can fall into homelessness and how unidentified and/or unresolved issues from our past can be brought to the forefront by trauma, making that trauma even more difficult to resolve.
