Fear of taking medication

Hello,
I was wondering if anybody else has experienced a phobia of taking their medication? I was originally prescribed methotrexate injections which gave me bad sickness and also became very upset when the day came to taking my medication. I was then changed to tablets and also put on humira as I wasn’t responding well to methotrexate alone. I still experience severe nausea and stomach pain and I also find the humira injections extremely painful when I inject them. Every time I have to take my medication it takes me hours to bring up the courage to do them and I always end up crying and shaking about the thought of taking the medication. I wanted to know if anyone else experienced this and also I wondered if you told your rheumatology team about your anxiety from the medication?
Thank you
