    I'm being...?

    I'm being deal with your problem, please be patient!

    Does the sentence make any sense?
    Does it grammatical?

    It should be 'I'm dealing with your problem. Please be patient'.

    But,Rover_KE, I saw it at the story books of children.
    I copied it and was making the sentence from original to new one.

    Re: I'm being...?

    What was the original sentence? Your new version is wrong.

    What was the book? Where was it published? It is definitely wrong.

    You said you saw it in a children's book. That is definitely not a children's book!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I'm being...?

    Sorry, my bad memory tell me that book, not a children's book.

    I want to say that the sentence was correct, but I made a wrong sentence myself and then posted here for checking the grammar.

    That's not the way to get help here, Polyester. We appreciate it when learners put some effort into their questions. That encourages us to do the same with our answers. Five or six people have tried to help you, and now you say you took no care before posting.
