    Deficiency - only for vitamins?

    I wanted to know it it's ok to use deficiency noun in a context different then regarding to vitamins etc. for example, I wanted to write:

    " I am aware of my deficiencies, moreover I consider them a plus, as I am willing to work twice as hard as others to keep up and eventually be a few steps ahead of everyone. " - does it sound ok?

    That is a proper use of "deficiencies". The word "moreover" is a conjunctive adverb. It cannot join two independent clauses with just a comma. You should put a semicolon before "moreover", and I would follow it with a comma.
