I would not work, to be honest, but if you really need to work, try to work but if you feel very bad, get permission to go home
Well I like to myself that I'm feeling good. Trying to sike myself out. I don't go to work if I have a fever or vomiting. The fever because other people can catch what you have and the vomiting because that's something I don't want anyone to see me do.
I would take a short nap and if that doesn't work I would go and tell the boss that I'm not feeling well and If I could go home for the day. Then I would take care of myself at home. Get better and go to work feeling better for the next day.
Lean on your chair, go for deep breath of 6 count.With first breath relax your left leg,and second breathe relax ur right leg,so on 3rd breathe left arms and 4th breathe for right arm, now with ur 5th breathe relax your upper body,finally with 6th breathe relax ur head and neck.
It may take ur 3 min, after that relax for 2 more min on ur breathing.
after that you can deal with any one in any matter.

I sit at a desk all day, so working sick isn't all that hard because It doesn't take all that much energy. Whether or not I stay home depends mostly on my general overall feeling. If I really feel like crap, and I need to stay in bed, then I don't force myself to go. But if I'm just going to be up and around at home, then I might as well be at work.
it cud be your work or people there making you sick that day. then take off. also its contagious like cold, do workplace favor and take off. sometimes going to work either fixes the initial sick feeling, or makes it worse. take off if the latter.

i sleep it off...at work
I drink lots of cool (not cold) water when I'm feeling sickly at work; I'll go through around twenty 12 oz cups if I'm not feeling good.
As for staying home, we're encouraged to take sick time at my job; the boss has discovered that people don't work well when they don't feel well. I try not to abuse it, so I'll only stay home if whatever's wrong will prevent me from doing my job. In my case: vomiting, migraines, diarrhea, or laryngitis (I'm a 911 operator. If I can't listen and talk, I can't do my job).
i don't really have a choice, i have to go to work no matter what. the only way i wouldn't is if i had to run to the bathroom every 5 secs bc then i wouldnt be able to do my job. but honestly it has to take a lot
Smoke a little pot it will make you feel better trust me.
If you are running a fever and vomiting, for heaven sakes do not go to work! You are sick. You also must think of the other employees and not spread the virus or sickness. That is how we get so many people sick at one time is by people going in to work being ill and touching door handles and other things that their fellow workers also touch. I am sure you boss would much rather you stay at home if you are genuinely ill. It is the right thing to do for you as well as all of the other people that you come into contact with.
i have plenty of days to take off, but i think that i would rather be at work sick than spend a free day at home sick.
well of course it always depends on the type of job you have but i use basically two criteria - how effective i'd really be if i went to work (being so sick that i knew i couldn't concentrate or work seems like there's no point in going) and secondly whether or not the day of rest will make a real difference, like if it's winter and its the kind of cold that if i stay home i'll recover in a day but if i go to work it will definitely get worse and eventually will be so bad that i will need to take even more days off. A third criteria that I sometimes use is how contagious I am, there's no use in making other people sick as well.
Vomitting from a stomach virus, I would definitely stay home because it will go all day long and there's nothing you can do. Vomitting that will subside if I eat dry foods and drink tea, then I'd go. And if a fever is so bad that your body is hurting then you shouldn't go because it could be dangerous (you could pass out to say the least).
When I have no choice and have to go to work anyway, then I go in to do the important things like check email and any other important projects, but I always let people know that I'm ill and dont attempt to start something new and will reschedule any important meetings or calls where if I'm feeling ill it may reflect badly on myself, my work or my company.
Then the best thing to do is drink LOTS of tea (green or non caffeinated herbal/fruit tea) eat lightly, and take lots of asprin or ibprofin for the pain. And I go home as soon as possible :)
