Careful with reflexive verbs in Italian, as they’re used a little more extensively than in English.
For example, when you go to the doctor’s you say:
“Non mi sento bene”
with the reflexive pronoun ‘mi’ rather than without as in English:
“I don’t feel well”
As I often remark to my students (Italians learning English, who have the same problem but the other way around) “I don’t feel myself” has a different meaning.
“What?” they ask.
So I do a little mime.
