atascado, atrancado...


Explanation:
metido en la casa todo el día=stuck at home all day
atascado=mentally stuck at some point of a task, unable to move, an object that refuses to move
atrancado=object, such as a door, that won't budge, eg, is stuck shut

if stuck is the past tense of stick (doubtful in this instance, but just in case)
pegado, clavado, puesto, metido, adherido, etc. all can mean stuck in certain contexts

if a nickname stuck: se quedó con ese nombre
if you got a song stuck in yer head: se me quedó grabada

and so on and so forth.
