    Hi there,
    If I want to send a text message to my friend telling her that I do not feel very well today and want to cancel the meeting. Can I say like this?

    I am feeling sick today and I will cancel the meeting. OR
    I feel sick today.

    I don't know if I should use simple present or present progress.

    Many thanks

    Re: feel

    In this context, the meaning is the same. It will take you less time to key the second one. :)
