ALWAYS used in Present Continuous

Can we use the adverb โ€˜alwaysโ€™ in
Present Continuous tense like โ€˜I am
always missing youโ€™.
and if I use always in Present Continuous tense, what does โ€˜alwaysโ€™ mean?

Iโ€™m sure you have learnt how to use Present Simple with adverbs of frequency: never, hardly ever, rarely, seldom, sometimes, often, usually, always. These are things that happen regularly:
ย 

  • I never go to bed before midnight.
  • She always calls me when she gets home.

ย 
However, you can also use Present Continuous to talk about habits:
ย 

  • Heโ€™s always calling me in the middle of the night.
  • My daughter is constantly nagging me to buy her new clothes.

ย 
What makes the above sentences different is that they express annoyance. We use Present Continuous to describe habits that we find irritating or annoying.
