If you drove it home like that you probably fried the transmission. Hopefully not, check your transmission fluid level. If is is brown/black and smells burnt it's probably toast. If it's not burnt or low the check your emergency brake it might be on or hung up.

The trans of today work with electrical shift solenoid valves. Try this ,check fluid ,if ok .Shift it all the way to low with your shifter . If it moves better sounds like you may have a stuck solenoid in your trans. check your connecter on the side of your trans as well.
