Non-stop asthma

I have had asthma since I was 2 yrs. old and I’m now 55 … I have been on many studies and used about all inhalers they have out, and they work for a while then winter hits and I live in my room for 2-3 months.
I would like to jump outta bed and go for a run or just feel like I could conquer the world but I’m constantly on prednisone (which makes me crazy and I eat the house) I want to work out but when I start a work out I soon find I’m not going to breathe good enough to do this so I quit. I feel I’m on a downwards spiral but I’m trying to be positive and look forward to warmer weather.
