Hi Elizabeth :)I know what you mean about squirrels. I'm bipolar which has some symptom overlap with ADHD. When I get manic the squirrels come out. I am distracted easily and get scatter-brained. I just can't concentrate on one thing at a time, I'm all over the place. Start one project and and stop, then start another or not even return to either project at all. I took a grad course in special ed and wrote essays for a test, thought I did great, got it back and had a 76. None of what I wrote made any sense,the thoughts were all over the place. Well,enough of my rambling. Best of luck in your studies and blessings to you and your wife.
