Try Baby thermometers. People dnt think to search those AND they are in a different section of the store. Sometimes they will be in new mom first aid kits.

You might find one on eBay - you can filter for sellers within 100 miles, new, etc, and see if someone will ship overnight. You’d pay more than store prices, but at least you’d have one. Just make sure the seller has very high feedback.

Do you have a neighborhood Facebook page? Next door app? Can ask if anyone had one you can borrow/buy.

I found one at target after repeatedly stalking their website. One of the stores near me received a shipment and I went there immediately after it popped up. They were sold out within a couple hours again

If you can't function due to a heavy depression cloud or anxiety attack, do you say you are taking some time off bc you're not feeling well or "under the weather "? That is the phrase of choice at my office for any sick time, but ppl usually ask what it is. I don't want to disclose but I don't want to seem lazy.
