The unemployment development department should have specific forms for filing an appeal, or just that you may need to notify them, so they can document your request for an appeal, and they will set a hearing date.
If not, then you should seek a paralegal's office in your area, for assistance in preparation of documents for filing.
My thoughts will be with you.

Information provided herein is based on my 30 years experience as a legal secretary/paralegal in the State of California, with experience and knowledge in the State of Nevada. This information is not intended to substitute for informed professional legal advice from a practicing, licensed attorney.
Of my professional experience, you may have trouble with this appeals process, being that you quit. I understand what you are saying concerning the fact of what you were going through physically, however, being that you quit, it may be that you will be denied benefits.
With this in mind, it may be more beneficial to seek temporary disability benefits, if you have't already.
Either way, you may wish to seek the advice and counsel of a labor attorney, or as mentioned in my initial response, you can seek a paralegal's office for assistance in preparation of documents for the appeal process.
My very best to you.
Thank you for responding, and reqesting more information.
Of my experience and knowledge, based on assisting legal clients, you should contact your local Social Security office in order to inquire as to applying for temporary disability, or you may visit their website to apply online. Please see below for their link:

To help with your claim, please consult with your physician(s), as you will need proof of your current medical conditions. in fact, usually physicians submit all proper forms directly to the Social Security office for their patients. You may wish to ask your doctor's office if they are willing/able to do same.
