Feeling Bad

Feeling Bad :

“I feel bad” is standard English, as in “This t-shirt smells bad” (not “badly”). “I feel badly” is an incorrect hyper-correction by people who think they know better than the masses.

People who are happy can correctly say they feel good, but if they say they feel well, we know they mean to say they’re healthy.
