    Procedure or Surgery

    this all started around christmas of 2012 when brackenridge hosp mis-diag. me with having T.B. and sent me to the travis co health dept. they made me start taking T.B. med and did so for about 3 weeks when the health dept decided that i didn't have T.B. i was sent back to Brackenridge Hosp and was then properly diagnosed with lung cancer. but since dec. of 2012 i have been out of work and got no help from the health dept. my boss was also my landlord and because i haven't been able to pay my rent because the health dept confined me to my home until told i could come out and all the cost asst. with being sick, co-pays, meds., and i also have 2 teens in school trying to graduate. my boss has given me a 3 day notice to vacate the property, and 2 days before surgery called me and demanded all the rent, which i didn't have at the time and was not sure when i would have it. i thought that after having cancer 3 times she might be a little more understanding. but i was wrong. she told me if i didn't come up with it i would be getting an eviction notice. i have been trying as hard as i can to get out of her place, but have not been able to do so yet and i'm afraid she's going to have me evicted before i'm well enough to do something about this.
