I found out I had herpes on Monday. I had been feeling reall

I found out I had herpes on Monday. I had been feeling really sick, I thought I had strep throat so I went to urgent care a couple of days before, they said it was allergies. The day after I could barely move and discovered a few bumps down there and was extremely sore. So I made an appointment for the next day (Monday).
My doctor tested me and told me that it's def herpes. I couldn't help but cry and thing of the stigma that surrounds genital herpes, I really thought I would make it my whole life with out having an STD. I told my boyfriend the night I found out. He was unsure of how to feel at first but ultimately decided to stick with me and reassured me that he loves me no matter what. He has been tested before because he is in the Army so I know I didn't get it from him.

Right now I'm just having trouble with how painful this OB is. I no longer feel sick but I am so sore. Walking hurts, and using the bathroom hurts. I just want it to be over. I'm in so much pain. Is it supposed to feel like this?
I was prescribed anti virals (HUGE blue pills).
