I know what you mean, I had to work when I had severe laryngitis one time and I'm a first grade teacher! For three days I couldn't say a sound. It was very difficult to work those days, but I had no fever, so I couldn't go home.
I've worked many days with asthma so bad that I was doing breathing treatments in front of the kids.
I usually have to stay home if I just cannot function.
