Question about Sewing Machines
My sympathies on your problem. We live next to a busy road and after considerable research, I installed sound-resistant windows, which helped a lot, but were expensive. Not a solution for you.
What I have learned is that the best way to block sound thru windows, other than turning them into a wall, is to provide at least a 2" air gap between the existing glass and an interior glass barrier, which is how my windows work. Even with that solution however, low frequencies are very difficult to mute (loud pipes save lives, I guess ??).
You are on the right track with heavy drapes, but prepare to be disappointed. On the bright side, you may get used to it ??.
For sleeping, consider soft ear plugs. No joke. They work well.
Sorry to hear about you problem.
All the best.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your quick response! I did so much research...ahhhh! I did read about having the 2" gap between the 2 layers. Believe me...I think i!m close to being an expert on the physics of sound :). I was just wondering I'd anyone had success with stuff around the home or low-cost store bought stuff that I referred to in my request.....day stuff. I do wear the earplugs as well as the noise machine. I just don't feel like wearing them all day. I'm disabled from working so I'm home ALL day long!! I so appreciate your input! Thank you so much! Have a good evening!"
You might want to try some cheap insulation such as recycled blue jean material or the pink styro 2" thick during the evening and night. This would allow you to remove during the day for light.
