the small area of extra cells is very localized, while the receptors are all over the place.

How about this-these few extra cells have their own agenda. Sort of like cancer cells, but without the rabbit-like reproductive qualities. Perhaps they are very single-minded in their mission, and that mission is to block seratonin production and/or release. As to the chronic/episodic aspect, let's hypothesize that these cells vary between us both in quantity and strength. Chronics have either more or stronger cells. They are able to manufacture their seratonin-blocking thingamajiggies more rapidly and more often. We episodics are 'blessed' with slow rogue cells which need time to build up their electro-chemical whatevers to an effective level. Once they do...BANG! A few weeks go by and they've shot their load. Gotta go back to manufacturing more.

Just one man's thoughts (and you gals thought men couldn't think! :-)
