I'm supposed to appear in small claims court for a collector

I'm supposed to appear in small claims court for a collector on behalf of Citibank. They are trying to get me to pay the credit card balance if $3180.28 (2/13/12 last payment was $100). I have since been hospitalized numerous times, don't have access to any past bills, and been only able to work part time when not sick. Got disability last July. Don't have $ to pay it. My guess is the balance grew with the interest charges. What to say tomorrow, could not afford lawyer obviously.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I'm supposed to appear in court with a magistrate at 9am tomorrow 2/28.
