Ive Applied For Disability But I Really Need Money And Need To Work Possibly Part Time While Waiting Is This Allowed?

I applied for disability, but i need to go back to work because of financial reasons sick or not i can not afford to stay at home anymoe. However. Im still in the waiting process. If i go back to work now. Do i forfeit my disability by working part time before i have recieved approval?

I worked for three months during the two plus years that I was waiting for my disability and when we got to the appeal trial they held it against me that I worked. I told them that I was fired for not being able to perform the job due to not being able to stand and work the hours, etc- and they didn't care. To them, it showed that I COULD work. I was pissed because I Had read that its better to show that you at least try to work. Not in my case!!! I was denied disablity and told I could work in an office as a receptionist.
