Herpes vs herpes simplex

What’s the difference? Is there a difference? I recently found out I have hsv 2 from my ex bf if 5 years we have been broken up for 6 months but it’s still shocking that he gave me this n never mentioned it to me . I’m crying bc I don’t kno how my future relationship will work out considering the fact I’m basically Infected . Can somebody please break this down to me . This just brought me to the lowest point in my life n I was already depressed
