I feel really guilty for taking a sick day from work?

Had to take today off from work due to not feeling well. I just had 2 days off I didnt want to take a 3rd for being sick but I did.

Yesterday had fever, chills & ached. Got no sleep. Previous symptoms were gone by morning but I had a cough, headache, fatigue and certain mo made me lightheaded. 

I'm on my feet constantly for my job, I know I couldn't have gotten through a shift. 

Also didn't want to get my co-workers sick, but I feel like I should have gone and just pushed through it since I didnt feel as bad as I did last night. 

I feel like I'll be judged by everyone for taking a sick day even though I know I won't.

    Americans work longer and take less free days from work than European workers. Many people are allowed to save their vacation days and get paid for them at the end of year.

    Don't feel guilty for taking a sick day off. You should really feel guilty if you did not take that day and spread whatever you have to your workmates.

    Why? Sometimes you just need a break
