Wait until the morning but if you don't feel any better then don't go.

Go and if you're ill tell them you need to go home.

You might be ok in the morning though. You managed to get to the supermarket which isn't easy when you're feeling ill (I would have shopped online lol) and just cos you took a bad turn, doesn't necessarily mean you will at work.

OT is always a touchy subject especially at this time of year and in the current financial climate...personally I would go in and let them send me home if I was still bad. That way it shows you made the effort and that you really couldn't physically do the OT you were offered.

Get to the doctors. If you have been ill for a week you should be able to get a sick note, even if you don't really need one it will prove you were actually ill.
