I'm working on a short horror story in which the main character has extreme paranoia about the people close to them dying/being hurt. They have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and deal with these fears using some common behaviors, such as "Checking" (they call their loved ones often and sometimes just drop by randomly to make sure they are safe), and probably some rituals (like making sure all the lights are off but one before they leave their house or else something bad may happen, still not too sure about what things I have in mind for that). As they seem to be getting better, the things they fear start actually coming true. This is probably going to lead them into a state of confusion and guilt seeing as they believe these things were their fault (like someone they love suddenly getting into a car accident) even though they know it's impossible. There's a twist which I'm not planning to directly give away in the story, but they are actually a prophet and it manifests in their disorder. There's going to be a subtle hint to this, the character being introduced as a man named John who lives in Patmos, Arkansas (like the Greek John of Patmos from the Book of Revelation). I'm not trying to glorify anything, this story is going to be of the horror genre for a reason, one of them being it's pretty much a nightmare for anyone with an anxiety disorder such as OCD. I've seen countless stories with OCD written in a very cliche and almost parodying way, usually with reviews from actual people who have or know about it that aren't happy with the way it's portrayed. I want to keep from writing a terrible stereotype in hopes of it feeling more real and I would also perhaps like some first hand accounts from anyone on this website that has a similar type of OCD to my character? Thanks in advance!
