    Cool Present simple/Present continuous

    Hello!

    Can you tell me if the present simple and present continuous are properly used here, please?

    -It's terrible when you are explaining your problems and nobody listens.


    -The situation you describe/are describing is really difficult.

    Thank you very much for your help

    -The situation you describe/are describing is really difficult. Both are OK here.
