Due to my previous thread being locked (sorry for not following guidelines), I'm going to ask just one question.

Now, not saying I do or I dont have obsessive compulsion disorder, whether I do or dont, but regardless can it be cured? Is there any sort of medication that can cure obsessive compulsion disorder or similar disorders?

Most personality disorders can be cured, unless it's something like severe paranoia.

Like other PDs, behaviorial therapy and cognitive therapy (combination of both are not uncommon) are the first approaches that would be taken. If it fails, then medication is implemented.

I would not have any idea what medication would be used, but I imagine they would inhibit the release of serotonin.
