Today is the Great American Grump Out. We are asked to go 24 hours without being grumpy.Do you someone who is always grumpy? Have you ever wondered what causes grumpiness?

"Grumpiness" is mainly a state of mind. It can be caused by chemicals in the brain that cause a person to be depressed, or by chronic pain (which also can effect the brain) that reduces a person's ability to cope with other matters. Grumpiness can also be a sort of a habit. Some people learn to be "grumpy" and don't realize they are or perhaps don't believe they are.
