In a bid to punish herself over the self-chosen belief of causing her brother's death, a woman resorted to taking hard drugs which badly damaged her teeth.
According to her, it all started one time she kept her brother who had cancer company in bed only to find out he had died 15 minutes into them spending time together.
In a touching video shared by Inspire, the lady stated that she went into a dark place, hung out with bad kids and did all sorts of nasty things before eventually coming back to her senses.
A medic erroneously recommended that her damaged teeth were beyond redemption and had to be taken out.

She couldn't eat
The unidentified lady explained that she had to resort to taking only liquid food she called 'ensures' in the place of food but this couldn't make up for solid meals as she lost weight rapidly.
The weight loss meant she put on several clothes at a time to look well-fed and alright. She would later discover that her teeth could have been fixed if she had been guided rightly.
The heartwarming video wraps up with a dentist giving her a new set of teeth, much to the lady's surprise.
Social media reacts
Michelle Laroche said:
"I'm glad this young lady finally got the strength and support she needed to move on with her life. Her face was totally different after receiving her new teeth. We all do silly or regretful things growing up but usually there are family and good friends to help us muddle through. Seems like she had nobody. I wish her all the best."
