I see all these posts of people in act 1 doing like 500+ dps and even into the thousands. How is this possible? Im in act 2 already(lvl 22) and i use a sword and shield and i only do around 38 dps

They are in ACT 1 of a higher difficulty (Hell/Inferno). I'm assuming that since you are lvl22 then you are in the normal difficulty on your first play through, thus your DPS is average for you.

Try to stack some strength with gear. Find something socketable and insert ruby. Levelling builds base STR which becomes the multiplier for your damage so just keep working at the payoff begins to be visible. Try a higher speed weapon, with before mentioned rubies inserted. I'm only a few levels higher then you and depending on which weapon I want to use at the time I can range around 200 Damage on the character screen. I have not found my best gear myself, it has been shared to me by others. Find some good friends to play with and enjoy!
