Five years is enough time to get a handspring if you are in good physical
condition. You should have your handspring by now unless you are not in
shape. If you've badly injured your elbow while being spotted and if you
are afraid of the skill you may need another coach's opinion to help you
get out of your rut. Let me know if you need a referral for a specialty
weekend clinic of coaching. You'd have to travel for it, but it may be
worthwhile if you really need it.
