It certainly my be challenging; however, medical school is challenging for everyone. There have been many physicians that have successfully completed medical school with diagnoses of depression and even OCD. It may be a bit more challenging but if you love medicine it will be well worth it. I would encourage you to go for it.
Medicine is an exhilarating field and I am constantly amazed at what I get to do everyday.
