Default Oh the pain....

New to snowboarding (at 40 I decided it was time to enjoy a winter sport)- I have been out 4 times now, but am really starting to get a little discouraged.... I know, I know... "stick with it", "we've all been there".... I know what you're going to say.... However, I'm am just not seeing it. I have been down both green and blue runs (surprisingly did better on the steeper runs), but am getting tired of hurting my body on the hard pack!!! I can hardly walk today due to deep bruising - is it supposed to HURT this much??
I guess my question would be: Should I just get a lesson as opposed to having a frind show me the ropes? I can link my turns quite well, but I am taking a heavy spill in the first 20 minutes and that is ruining my confidence for the rest of the day....
I feel I am close to breaking through and actually feel like I am getting it... but I am not sure how much more pain I can take - Help??
