Is it weird to have a fear of pills?

I only take one for thyroid. Just a few weeks ago I had a blood test and my doctor told me I got high cholesterol. He prescribed me some medicine to lower cholesterol but I am afraid to take it. Instead I decided to just take care of myself by eating better and exercising. Is there anything wrong with that? Like... show more I only take one for thyroid.

Is there anything wrong with that? Like is a pill really necessary?
Update: I don't want to complicate my body with more medicine if it can be avoided.
