I was just recently diagnosed with Genital Herpes. I got it

I was just recently diagnosed with Genital Herpes. I got it from my boyfriend who had a cold sore on his lip. We both did not know that a cold sore could cause this. I am currently going through my first outbreak and I am in so much pain. I started the valtrex today and I hope it helps. I am really scared and dont know what to expect. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated!
