    It Sounds like you’re experiencing normal age related memory issues rather than dementia. Have you contacted your colleges’ office of disability? Recently a specific learning disability has been discovered related specifically to math. Sort of like dyslexia only in the world of numbers rather than words.They might offer special tutoring.
    Just want to say how impressed I am that you’re working on another college degree st age 68. I finished a Masters at age 58…hang in there!

    I find driving With other people in the car very distracting. I have to tell people to be quiet when I am maneuvering in traffic. And often when I’m traveling on the highway I will miss an exit because if I’m in a conversation with someone.
    BUT I love driving alone and sometimes will just get in the car and take a drive when I’m feeling overwhelmed by my racing thoughts. Driving alone in my car, I find that there is just enough concentration on the process of driving to calm down my brain. I feel like I’m in control, in control of something anyway. And my ADD Isn’t messing up my brain.
    Wondering if anyone else enjoys driving alone?
