Anthony Barone, center, information clerk at Illinois Eye Institute, talks with Dr. Janice McMahon during one of his walks down the halls of the institute. When Barone was 7, he couldn’t stop tapping, touching and counting things. He lived 50 of his 72 years before realizing he suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder. It was another 13 years before he received treatment that has allowed him to lead a more normal life. McClatchy Tribune
