Appeal the unemployment decision. You should get a packet in the mail with the notice of denial which explains how to appeal. You'll have to show why you deserve unemployment. Look at the rules promulgated by the Texas Unemployment Board and how they do or do not apply to you. If you are unsure of how to appeal after receiving the packet you should hire an unemployment law attorney. Most unemployment appeals are structured so that you can do it yourself, but some find a lawyer helpful.
The other thing you can do is begin applying to jobs, see if you get hired, and if you don't apply again on that basis.
Best of luck,
