I wonder if chronic (mild) stress depletes neurotransmitters like dopamine levels or change the expression of dopamine receptors (D2?).

I used to masturbate a lot during stress (to porn). After orgasm I would feel guilty because dizziness made me unproductive, I would be worried and stressed about work I wasn't doing and what a half human I was. So orgasm had inverse effect but cycle repeated because of my addiction. I think that's how the illness started for me
