Many people's minds and bodies feel disconnected, and they are surprised at just how much these two different systems can influence each other.
Physical pain does several things to the personality. It can create depression. It can make one irritable and impatient, or feeling unfit to be around others. One might even feel hopeless, or have thoughts of ending things.
It you are in physical pain, see a doctor or a healer. So much suffering in this world is needless - there is no moral good to "toughing it out", especially when pain becomes chronic.
