Today, after countless nights of no sleep and only some spontaneous naps, I was finally seeing a sleeping doctor to analyze the problem. I missed the appointment because I ended up sleeping through my alarm after not being able to sleep at all last night. FML

Hope you get to reschedule, it's not your fault. FYL

urgen care perphaps? you dont want to have an appointment for another day and lose more sleep

They don't have sleep doctors at urgent care clinics.

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.

Next thing you know you'll start having vividly real dreams about zombies and stuff.

At least you got some much needed rest. I'm pretty sure you can reschedule after talking it over with the doctor. Good luck OP.

Fate has a fondness for moments like that.

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.

sounds like someone hasnt been drinking enough cough syrup
