You can tell us: We're your friends and care. How often is a person scratched with a key to the point of drawing blood? I believe that every physician reading this will consider the question unrealistic. If you shared a needle with someone else, you are in serious danger of contracting all three diseases. You should get with your physician now for possible prophylaxis and for mental-health care / addiction Rx.

Again, I can tell there's more going on than being scratched with a key. Please remember that your physician is your friend. You can tell him / her anything and it's protected, and you won't be ridiculed or condemned. Please be safe, and if you need help just managing unrealistic fears, your physician is good for that as well.
