I have bipolar disorder and have been denied from disability benefits, what should I do ?

I have bipolar disorder and have been trying for years to apply for disability benefits. Since 2012. I recently had a hearing in october 2017 and I got the decision letter from the judge about 5 days before christmas and the judge denied me. The judge told me there wasn't enough evidence and says it is useless and that if I tried again with the same documentation then it will get denied immediately. I have doctors documentation stating that I can't work and an attorney but it still wasn't enough to help me. What should I do ??

Ask for a copy of your medical records, you're entitled to them, but your GP might charge you a small fee, like £20 or something, that would help if you have problems dating back years.
