I've been working at a new place for a little over two weeks. I do my job well. But I've already had to call out of work three times! I've managed to get sick twice in the past 2 weeks. If I could go in I would. I really would. But I threw up about 5 times today and am having to run to the bathroom to have diarrhea every other hour. I feel like shit.
My boss was a little annoyed when I told her this morning that I'm sick but she said its okay and to come back when I'm well. Well she called me just now saying "you HAVE to feel better tomorrow because we are understaffed and we need you." I probably won't be able to go.
people call out a lot at that place and one woman is even a no show sometimes but the thing is I'm still new and more replaceable I guess. This is really stressing me out and it isn't helping my stomach.
Do you think I'd get fired over this?

If you had been working there a while and had a reputation for being on time you would not have a problem with your current situation. But being there only two weeks and calling out twice is not looking good. Looks like you are just skipping work, or that your "sickness" is due to something like being drunk the night before.
So, recommendation for right now: The Bratt Diet. It may be your best chance to get in there tomorrow. If you have a bug that fights you too hard, it may not work, but try it since it usually does.
