Quote: A Mother’s Isolation

Title: House Rules
Author: Jodi Picoult
Page: 42

Jacob’s mother, Emma, thinks about one of the last times she was invited to dinner:

…when they invited us for dinner and all I could talk about was how a cream of transdermal glutathione had helped some autistic kids, who couldn’t produce enough of the substance themselves to bind to and remove toxins from the body.

Isolation. A fixation on one particular subject. An inability to connect socially.

Jacob was the one diagnosed, but I might as well have Asperger’s too.
