I too know how you feel each time you are denied. I admitted to a mental illness on my third try, and got the benefits. I think it is easier to get approved with a mental Illness. I didn't want my mental illness to be the deciding factor, but I believe that it was.
I have seen SSA turn down some interesting people. Bill as a quadraplegic, and still got denied is unbelievable. I was wondering how approval changed from state to state, but now I know. the judges are all state people, probably paid to find reasons to deny cases.
I would get an attorney as quickly as possible and reapply.
With many prayers and much hope for you in this process.
