I make ok money as a nurse. Not rich by any means, but enough to live comfortably.
My daughter has always been extremely driven in school, and knew she wanted to be an engineer. She is halfway through a major in computer engineering, with a minor in Chinese. She will make major money when she is finished, and the job market is good. But boy has she worked hard. I don't know if I would have been willing at her age to push myself to that extent. The difficulty level of her classes astounds me. She will probably easily double my salary, but she earned it.
I was a NCNS once earlier in my career. I was on a day/night rotation, and the schedule for nights was super confusing. So I thought I had to work the next night, and no showed for my shift. They were able to get a hold of me, and I came in with no sleep a few hours late for my shift. My career and I both survived the embarrassment.
I know you feel terrible, and I did too. But it honestly isn't a career ending move if you have been a good employee. You have apologized, they have most likely forgiven you, and now you can move on from it.
Have you imagined a world without most jobs, though? Garbage collectors, housekeepers, cab drivers, etc.
