1. Use Ambien. 2. Join women's rights activist group. 3. Write strongly worded complaints about the objectification of women perpetuated by the porn industry while in a drug-induced stupor (you'd be in the stupor, not the women). 4. Profit… from your sleep disorder!

I tend to schedule appointments for the afternoon if possible because of my sleeping disorder, just in case I sleep through my alarms. Shit happens, surely a sleep specialist will understand.

I've been there, I used to have the same symptoms you do, it took going to a sleep doctor to figure out the problem too. There's many ways I coped with them to try and not miss important events. Set multiple alarms at 5min integrals, and at max volume. Scare yourself awake, the adrenaline rush can get you up and going. If you live with someone, ask them if they can get you up, and make sure they know not to leave you until you physically get up, because falling back asleep is very easy. You could also set an alarm for a little earlier than you're supposed to get up, and then take a stimulant of some kind, caffeine pills, a cup of coffee, or something, that way when the time you're actually supposed to wake up rolls around, the stimulants have kicked in and you're more awake. For now, just reschedule and tell the doc what happened. I'm sure you're sleep doc will understand, they usually do, they deal with this stuff all the time. Maybe even try for an appointment that's more in the afternoon or evening, that way you don't have to deal with the exhaustion and potential of sleeping through your alarm in the morning.
