I was on the same boat recently. The paper visa is not affected by your passport validity. Also, h1b stamp is generally issued for a year so you should be fine for now. My most recent stamp expired past the expiration date of my old passport

I would renew the passport post H1B stamping. Then, any time before passport expiry date, renew your passport. Your H1B stamp will still be valid even in an expired passport.

A friend opened up to me about her extra marital interest/dilemma surrounding that interest. She realizes her pattern due to some underlying issue she needs to resolve and is seeing a therapist, yet whenever we talk she goes into details related to this guy and about her dilemma. I have listened to her for 3 months and weighed in where I could, and I care about HER and her mental health. But if ask about her mental health she goes into stories about this dude. How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
