    Thanks
    There are literally hundreds of possible answers to that question! I'm fine. I'm great. I'm terrible. I feel awful. I'm really tired. I'm OK. I'm alright. I feel like death. I feel amazing. Etc etc.

    More importantly, please see my amendments to your original post. You need to concentrate particularly on your use of capital letters at the beginning of every sentence, and to always capitalise the word "I".

    I am not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    First of all, always remember to end your sentences with a punctuation mark. Every sentence must have one of the following symbols

    . ! ?

    (or some other symbols which are less common) at the end of it.

    Also, remember that the first letter of the first word in every sentence must be a capital letter.

    I think this is a good place where you can learn written English grammar, all you need is just read and write. And pay attention to the statistics of the author's whose post you are reading (whether they a native speaker or not). However there are some people who carry very good English not being a native.
