If I get the appointment with my current H1B and then get H1B extension approval next March or April, will I be able to use the extension for my visa stamp or will I need to go through a different application process and get a different appointment?

Okay ladies I need your help. Have not bought any professional clothes in over two years because of remote work. Now we are transitioning back into the the office and travel is back on. The clothes I do have do not fit either stylistically or otherwise(admittedly). Also can’t wear pants or anything too stuffy. So basically need recommendations for polished professional clothes that are also relatively comfy (I don’t think I could ever wear panty hose or heels to work again). Please help.

Group therapy this week brought so much shit to the surface this week I’m tired from crying. I know it gets worse before it gets better and this is a good sign. I have a pattern of taking all of my historical coping skills to an explosively unhealthy place. Ex I became a distance runner to deal with being disowned as a teenager. Well that triggered a degenerative spinal issue that has given me major issues for the last 20 years. Replaced running w cpa and now I’m a mean workaholic. Ugh I suck

Confidene, I have a very low self confidence even though I do receive very positive feedback on every piece of work I deliver from team and clients. I've been quite lucky in super fast career progression on the back of fantastic performance on every engagement since I've kicked off my career probably that is the reason why, a total of 6 years from Associate to Senior Manager! Compared to other consulting SMs who have been forever and have far deeper knowledge... any tips?
Sorry bit long!
Honestly I feel so isolated on my project. This WFH has taken a toll on my mental health and I don’t know how much more I can take. I barely speak with anyone other than the other analyst on my project. I want to set up daily touch points just to know I’m not alone. I’ve told my counselor I want to roll off and join a team that interacts more, but he just says to be grateful I have my job and am billable through the year. Is anyone else feeling this way? How do you cope?
