I was an hour and 45 minutes into my 12 hour shift. I got very sick very fast. Like... we're talking throwing up multiple times, clammy hands, exhaustion, diarrhea, becoming freezing cold, fever, and sweating so much that it soaked through my clothes and dripped onto the floor.
I feel badly because now someone has to be called in to cover me and also because now I will burn some PTO for the hours I missed.
I don't like to skip work - even felt guilty taking PTO for vacation a few weeks ago.
There's no denying that I was sick and company policy states that if you throw up you get sent home. But still... I'm feeling guilty.
I know it's not my fault, but I feel like I'm letting them down.
Am I being silly?

Yes. You were probably contagious. The last thing they need is you taking your whole group down.
Rest up and get well.0

You're being silly.
You're not well.
Put your phone away, get in bed, stick the TV on low volume and get some rest.0
