Hi Illker! There is no difference in meaning, but the first sentence is technically incorrect (although very commonly used by native speakers) and the second sentence is correct like this: "I would have joined them if I weren't sick." If you want to know why, you should research the subjunctive mood in English. Happy studying! Matt
