Will a historical terminated student J1 visa prevent me from gaining future visas to the U.S.?

I have the opportunity to work in the U.S. in the near future through my company and I would like to, however, I am unsure whether or not I would have my visa application approved.

This is because when I was at university I was admitted to study abroad in the U.S. on a J1 visa, I flew out to begin my exchange but then got cold feet basically as soon as I arrived and never went to the university, instead got a flight home. I was suffering from a mental illness at the time and there were lots of family issues going on at home. I remember debating even boarding the plane they day I flew out. Anyhow, I did board and entered the U.S. but flew back to the UK a day later. Because I entered the U.S. and didn't register my visa, my SEVIS record was terminated as "NO SHOW".

I know this can make getting another student visa near impossible, however, would this also prohibit me from a work visa.

Every time I visit the U.S. I have to go through secondary because of this SEVIS record, so I am assuming it will definitely prohibit any hopes of a visa?

Advice greatly appreciated as I need to factor these eventuality into my career plan.

To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
