torn rib cartilage because I'm irresponsible

So I may or may not have worn two binders over each other for about 12+ hours for a few days in a row...I thought the pain I was having was normal binding pain until I noticed that the pain wouldn't go away and I heard clicking when I breathed too hard. I also recently noticed that the right side of my ribs stick out a bit more than the left side (even though they were perfectly even before I started binding) so the bones have definitely shifted somehow. I think I've torn some cartilage because I don't see bruising and it's not broken-rib-perforating-lungs type pain. I'm not sure what to do about it because I'm a minor living in a very transphobic household so hospital is out of the question. Would trying to realign my ribs myself be that awful of an idea too?
