    it sounds like you are in a tough position, you are trying to reach out to your doctor but scared of what may happen with your family due to past experience, is it possible to speak to the doctor about your concerns and say you do not want your family to know (depending on how old you are that is). Getting attention for your wounds is important for your well-being. i hope things work out okay for you.

    You should really try hard to resist the urge of cutting yourself. It only makes matters worse, because you lose a lot of blood and you're left with a lot of scars.

    If you live in the states and are over 18 you can request your family be left out of your treatment. MDs cannot ethically or legally breach patient-doc confidentiality... it's under the HIPAA laws, which are a big deal in the clinical AND legal fields.
