Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) refers to the overall GPA, which includes dividing the number of quality points earned in all courses attempted by the total degree-credit hours in all courses attempted in which a grade of "A", "B", "C", "D", "F" or "WF" has been received.

I had a 4.0 GPA in my first 8 months at college and one class brought me to a 3.5 GPA. Is it true that even if I get straight As from here on out til I graduate I can NEVER get that 4.0 back?

You will get it back as a semester GPA but never for your cumulative GPA. Let's say you get all A's next will have a 4.0 GPA for that semester but your cumulative GPA will be different. I suggest shooting for the highest grades possible because even though you won't get your 4.0 cumulative GPA back, you will raise your GPA above a 3.5.Also, do not be so down on yourself. A 3.5 GPA is still pretty good and after you graduate and start looking for jobs, GPA doesn't really matter at all. Get involved with clubs and honor societies....employers love that!
