Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

Okay, maybe I'm being dramatic but damn. I went to work today and had a rather stressful morning of computer problems and a short staff etc. Just then usual underpinnings of a bad day. This was made worse by the fact that until yesterday, my period had been 8 days late. I thought for a few days that I could be pregnant but decided to wait it out. This morning when I woke up I got my period to equal parts relief and disappointment. I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 2 years ago so I'm used to bad cramping but something about these seemed extra intense starting yesterday. Anway, my period was heavy and I just wasn't myself, feeling freaked out and stressed out by thinking I could perhaps be miscarrying. I've seen many patients go through this and knew if I was pregnant, I wasn't more than 5 weeks if that, and there was nothing a medical doc could do for me. I asked my boss to go home because I wasn't feeling good and she said she'd rather I didn't because it was a busy day. I'm friends with this woman but I responded by saying something along the lines of 'I have sick time available and I'm really not feeling well and have to go". And I did. I didn't explain all this other stuff about my period coming heavily, extreme cramping and my thinking I could be miscarrying. I did not think that I had to relay all that personal info about myself. As a mere employee, can a manger or other professional tell me how bad of a move I made? I even text my coworker after I left and explained why I had to leave so maybe she'd understand etc. No response. My boss who I am rather friendly with said via text that she is upset that I put her in a bad spot by leaving after she told me not to.... after I reached out to explained that I really was sick and everything that was going on. I don't know if I'm in the wrong but I wasn't feeling good and explained that I felt I needed to leave to my boss. Because she told me she didn't want me to and I did, can I get fired?
