Newbie query

I began learning the ropes almost 4 months ago -taking an hour lesson weekly ( a few missed ones due to holidays but that’s all)
I’m over 60 and I feel as if I am slow to learn, although my teacher says I am fine, doing well and growing in confidence.  I managed to make a complete mess of it about 6 weeks ago and gave myself nasty rope burns on both hands. My confidence took a huge knock and since then I am a little afraid..
I persevered and  have just started to ring rounds with a very patient band of ringers. Oh my word!!!  Will I ever get the timing right and feel as if I am in control!!!!
Tomorrow will be my third lesson at ringing in rounds and I am nervous. Excited but nervous. Is this normal???
