The detritus that gets stuck in a person's soul when another person has a complete meltdown and spreads their BS across the widest available arc becaue they can't keep their emotions in check.

A close kin to free floating anxiety - but with more oomph.
When your boss has a cow for something that wasn't your fault and really rips into you. You've got to take the hit without a flakjacket. The "Emotional Shrapnel" can lodge deep and cause future issues.
