You'll Never Understand My Pain refers to a one-panel webcomic showing a woman with a cut on her wrist complaining about her wound to a man with several knives in his back. Starting 2018, the comic has been circulated as an exploitable and an object-labeling meme about comparing various experiences to the pain of childbirth.
On July 19th, 2016, Instagram user meow91566 uploaded the comic to the platform, crediting "@Jeanty 2" as the original artist. In conversation with KnowYourMeme, meow91566 clarified that he discovered the original Spanish version of the comic on Facebook and translated it. The post gained 42 likes in two years.
On July 18th, 2016, Redditor Linusausage uploaded the image, supposedly taken from a now-unavailable earlier post, to /r/niceguys subreddit. The post gained over 400 likes in six months. In the following years, the comic was reposted to /r/im14andthisisdeep, /r/terriblefacebookmemes and /r/justneckbeardthings subreddits.
On August 15th, 2016, Redditor shock-shock-wave posted an edit of the image with woman and man labeled "wife" and "husband" to /r/funny subreddit, gaining nine upvotes in six months. On August 4th, 2018, Redditor Pajca uploaded an edited version of the comic to /r/GamersRiseUp subreddit. The post gained over 1,100 upvotes in six months (shown below).
On January 31st, 2019, Redditor Luca_Lastname posted a labeled version of the comic to /r/dankmemes subreddit. The post received over 34,100 upvotes in two weeks.
In the next weeks, more versions of the meme were posted in various subreddits and on Instagram. In the majority of the examples, the woman in the picture was labeled "giving birth" as in the post by Luca_Lastname.
