What To Say About Missing Two Meetings?

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about missing meetings:

Yesterday I slept straight through an early meeting. I’d taken a sleeping pill the night before and just slept right through my alarm. I rushed over to talk to my supervisor and apologized profusely swearing it would never happen again. Then, I don’t know what happened this morning, but I slept through another early morning meeting!I don’t know if I slept that heavily or just didn’t set my alarm right or what.

My supervisor asked me to come up with a plan for how to resolve the situation. What should I say? Other than taking full responsibility of course. I love this job, and also if I lose it I can no longer continue in graduate school. I feel like these incidents are not indicative of me as a person, but I realize that to her I must look lazy and irresponsible. I just don’t know what to say to make this better.
