Welcome Fran. As everyone is saying, the frustration is normal. Scan this forum and other music forums and you will see posts voicing the same concern from dozens of beginners. Don't be too ambitious too quickly - even "twinkle twinkle little star" is satisfying the first time you get it error free. Practice, but make sure that you're still having fun with it, and in a few months time you'll be amazed at how far you've come. Don't let the practice become a chore - take a day off now and then and you'll probably get a pleasant surprise next time you pick the guitar up - it seems that the brain keeps working on learning even when we're not present.
Do you have a friend or group/club that you can play with? Many of us find that having that support is what keeps us going, and also an experienced person watching you may come up with useful ideas that we can't do here without seeing you in action.
Good luck and have fun!
