There is a HUGE difference going into labor planning a natural birth and being forced to have a NCB without wanting one. Preparation or not, most of it is mindset. Think about it like eating at a restaurant. You order one thing on the menu but they bring you something else and then tell you they can't fix it, you have to eat this alternate meal. While you may have been fine with it had you ordered it, it's not what you planned on and so you feel grumpy and miserable eating it now. Not the best comparison, but all I could think of LOL.
Also, from everyone I've talked to pitocin contractions are vastly different than natural contractions. They aren't a slow warm-up, they are much more intense from the get-go.
