ever been in a psych ward, know someone who has?

in every ward there are certain terms that are exclusive to the hospital. terms like "decompensation" or "contraband" or "room restriction"

do you remember any terms that were used in the hospital that, if you hadn't been in there, you wouldn't have learned. or terms that take on different meanings in the hospitals. terms like "affect", used to describe one's disposition and attitude.

anon posting available, you don't have to out yourself or anyone else.

thank you in advance. if you want, pass this around to your friends list and help me get more responses.
