    if you are so fragile ,then you I don't recommend you to join the army ,the army life is full of trials and tribulation ,and is nothing like the cushy tasks, if you don't put up with other's criticism ,then you are not fit to be a solider ,you must endure hard life in the army ,and various tasks without prior notice ,     for others , someone yelling at you at the boot camp is a small things ,what if someone ask you to undergo several years of intensive training ?  you need to learn to be strong person ,

    What country are you from?  Most Americans I know would simply say "boot camp," not "the boot camp."

    Ask yourself, how are you going to "handle" people shooting at you, throwing grenades at you, firing cannons at you and dropping bombs on you if you can't even handle being yelled at? 

    You might want to reassess your deisre for a career in the military.

    Don't worry, when the recruiter learns you are a self described WIMP, you will never get TO basic training.

    If you have "ANXIETY", you won't be joining the US military forces, ANXIETY is a disqualifying condition.

    They are training you to handle a lot of difficult situations.  What would you do as a soldier if the enemy just had to yell at you ?  Boot Camp is meant to toughen you up.  Think of it as being in a play.  They have their lines and you have yours. And yours generally start with "Sir" and end with "Sir".

    You should see your Medical officer about your anxiety and he will ensure no one will yell at you.
