Go to Princess and grab a 12 point 7/16" or 3/8" wrench. It takes time but one point at a time. We've all been there... Patience will have it out in no time. Sometimes a socket just won't work, friend...

@69_RevHead now that I'm on a computer, it really looks like you should be able to fit a box wrench onto that bolt. Also if you never noticed, some sockets and wrenches have thinner or thicker walls.
and thinner beams too... as well as an offset on the points, if you flip the wrench 180°sometimes you can gain purchase on the flats of the bolt/nut head where otherwise you couldn't. Disregard the bend in the shank... you got this!
