I'm not a teen, I don't have a life, and I'm always depressed.

Enough with the various diagnostic tools, get on with finding a cure.

Smeggy Smurf: DROxINxTHExWIND: In before anecdotes about your miserable teenage years and that bully who made you feel bad.

I laugh at the shiatstains that were bullies.  They all got fat and married ugly women.  Most of them are stuck in shiatty jobs in shiatty towns

from somewhere else:

Stress can result from psychological, physiological and/or physical reasons.  When under stress, the body responds by increasing cortisol output from the adrenal glands.  Normal cortisol levels are not detrimental. In fact, cortisol is both beneficial and protective in controlling blood pressure, blood sugar levels, inflammation as well as strengthening cardiac muscle.  A normal cortisol rhythm should peak in the morning hours and then steadily decline through the day with the lowest levels at night. When the body experiences chronic stress, over time these levels increase above optimal range.
An acute rise in cortisol is not a bad thing, as it is the natural adrenal response to stress, like when you get a common cold, or experience an isolated stressful event or during exercise. However, when stress becomes unresolved or chronic, cortisol is continuously elevated and the body enters what is known as the adrenal resistance phase.
Chronically elevated cortisol levels are both inflammatory and catabolic and cause a myriad of disorders including: thyroid and metabolic dysfunction, cognitive decline, low serotonin levels resulting in depression, irritability, anxiety, carb cravings, immune suppression, altered glucose metabolism, elevated lipid levels, increased blood pressure, low melatonin levels resulting in altered sleep patterns, musculoskeletal issues resulting in difficulty recovering from exercise and possible subsequent injuries.  Cortisol levels are also related to mental acuity and can factor into degenerative diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer's.
