<dwarf> is stumbling around obliviously!
Stumbling obliviously!

Obliviousness is a temporary emotional breakdown triggered by stress, experienced mainly by dwarves with high propensity to anxiety. Oblivious dwarves will cancel any job they may be doing at the moment and stumble around until they regain their composure.

Unless stress levels are reduced, Dwarves with a history of depression will (unsurprisingly) tend to become depressed, while those with anger management issues will throw tantrums. If unchecked, this can repeat until the dwarf eventually goes stark raving mad.
