1991 190e 2.6 nightmare!!!!

First I guess I need to explain, Single, divorced female afraid of car mechanics. I have taken one in before and paid for repairs I later found out were never performed. So I am cautious!

My car was stolen, and my mother had a Mercedes FOREVER.... put over 300K mile and sold it to someone who still drives it. I find what I think is a pretty good deal on this model.

It starts to get hot and someone at the auto parts store who looked at it tells me it's a thermostat. I get someone to replace it. When they go to put coolant back into it notices a leak. Now I'm told I have a blown head gasket.

Ok, I am going to get it fixed but can't afford it until next month. How horrible is it to put the stop leak stuff in. And where do I put it??? The only place I can find is where I put the coolant. HELP!
