    forming of present continuos with its trouble

    I have read list about verbs that you can't form from them the present continuous tense and past continuous tesnse

    such as feel-hear-know-include-owe-see-love-care....etc


    but today when I read an essay the author have used the present continuous tense in that essay especially in this sentence:

    I'm feeling excited to see you over there


    is it true that list and this sentence? and if you have comment about please do not mind to mention....



    thanks in advance

    Re: forming of present continuos with its trouble

    It's not that you cannot use these verbs in continuous forms, but that we generally don't:

    He cares for his parents- general state
    He's caring for his mum after her operation- temporary state.
