Of course pain will cause you to be irritable. But i have found that it does no good so I always put on a happy face. I had knee surgery and I my Aunt, husband and I went to Laughin for a week. We were eating dinner and I was in an awful lot of pain and I was trying my very best not to show it. I got up to limp to the bathroom and I turned around and saw their worried looks. When I returned I said, "OK you guys we are here on vacation. I came because I was fed up with being laid up in my room for 5 weeks and if I have to be laid up in the room here, so be it. We came to have a good time and I'm going to heal soon so wipe so worried looks from your faces. It worked.
Pain in part of life. Getting irritable only causes more pain. I take it as it comes. I used to get really irritable and after 20 years you learn that it compounds the problem.
