    allergic runny nose/sinus infection

    Which do you think is the best choice in the underlined?
    Is "my life that has suffered from" correct?


    • Hawaii has a very nice air condition with warm weather, so I’d like to have my life that has suffered from allergic runny nose/sinus infection compensated by living there.

    Re: allergic runny nose/sinus infection

    I would take a different approach. Perhaps:

    I would like to live in Hawaii because it is always warm there and because my allergies would not act up there.

    The dictionary definition of "act up" is that something doesn't work or function well.
    So doesn't the last sentence have to be "my allergies would act up there."?

    Re: allergic runny nose/sinus infection

    When I have a runny nose and I am sneezy and maybe my eyes are watering I might say that my allergies are acting up. Never mind what the dictionary says.

    Those things are no fun (especially in combination), and I blame my allergies. If I am reacting to something in the air (pollen) I am likely to say my allergies are acting up. (They are! My body is attacking me!)
