    Do you have any bad experiences with men from the army Charlie? Or is it something else.

    There are two things you need to think about here. The first is the panic attack itself, understanding what a panic attack is and learning techniques to deal with that and reduce the intensity.

    The second thing to think about is what is triggering these panic attacks. The army men, what else? Is it crowds, is it uniformed people, is it men? Understanding your own anxieties and how they're affecting you can empower you to start to take control of the situation - you will understand what worries you and how you can take preventative measures from it escalating to a full blown panic attack, and also just having control of situations knowing where the sources of anxiety are.
