Regards. I have been reading about this particular hormone and that it's contained in tears, which is said to be the primary way of getting rid of it. In fact William H Frey II, biochemist at University of Minnesota, proposed that the elimination of this stress-related hormone through tears is the reason people tend to feel better after crying. What I'm wondering specifically is: If one doesn't cry often and experiences a lot of stress, where exactly does this hormone accumulate? In the anterior pituitary where it's made?

If I remember correctly, ACTH stimulates the adrenal cortex to produce cortisol, which is released in response to stress. It's not the thing that causes stress, so you're not going to accumulate it just because you don't cry.
But if someone did build up ACTH somehow, they'd probably release it in their urine.
