Losing my unemployment

When I lost the only job I could find when I reached remission from a diagnosis of brain cancer, I signed up for unemployment. I still couldn't find another job due to the fact that my credit was ruined while I was sick. I looked for a year and was steadily getting some income from unemployment. I lost it just one year after I lost my job. It kept me in food and paid a few of my bills but still left me hanging when I had no other choice. That's when I finally made the decision to go for disability with SSA. Currently my case has been refused 5 times. It is now in appeal. I have no idea if they'll ever help me but you'd think they would considering I have Osteoporosis, Arthritis and Fibromyalgia.
