 When I tried to accelerate the car started shaking and the engine light started blinking. I was able to limp home going slowly but it was idiling crazy rough though it never stalled

Do yourself and the thing a favor and don't drive it with a blinking "CEL" or equivalent warning light. Get code readings now. No harm in just looking for something totally out of place or disconnected, broken or a fluid underhood for some clue,

Tom is spot on here. Don't drive this until it is fixed. Your engine is misfiring. When the check engine light is flashing it means you have a dead misfire and if you keep driving on that you are going to wreck your cat converter. There will be codes, you need to get the code numbers and post them for us to see what is happening and which cylinders are being affected.
