Can I win my Unemployment Appeal?

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

In February, I was laid off from my full-time job because of a company reorganization.
I filed for unemployment, however I still had my part time job.
During my part-time job, I was diagnosed with tendonitis, which prohibited me from working because my condition would get worse. I have a doctor's note and documentation, so do you think I could win my appeal? They said I can no longer receive because I quit my job. Please help!
