Thanks a bunch for providing the microarray article. Exciting stuff.
Would an orthopedist who takes ibuprofen for his own arthritis represent an ethical dilemma?
Would an endocrinologist needing thyroxine be violating his Hippocratic Oath?
At the moment your passions lie in neuroscience - psychiatry in particular. You would be a much better doctor to choose a speciality that you have a passion for and for which study comes more easily than a field for which your interest lies in different motivations.
I don't know what is the source of your ethical dilemma. I don't see that there is one. However, whereas depression can certainly warp one's perceptions and decision making processes, it seems to me that your difficulties lie in your history rather than your cephaloneurofunction.
Oh, by the way, thanks for expanding my vocabulary. You are becoming a hell of a writer.
