How do I forgive and forget when my husband abandoned me?

i am married for a year now. i have some health problems that incapacitate me temporarily. during one of my such times, my husband walked out on me, went home and left me alone. with nobody to care and help me. I felt horrible and am feeling worse ever since. my husband has asked forgiveness but i am unable to forgive. and the thought, his act keeps bothering and worrying me. i do not have peace of mind. due to which i often get irritated on stuff i should not thus leading to too many clashes between us. my husband too is unable to understand my state and asks me to just forget and live in the present where he is sorry and promises not to do the same ever again. he does try his best, but i am some how unable to believe in him. i fear he may do the same again and ...... well, i really feel low. how do i calm myself and forgive him? how can i keep myself happy and at ease? please help me, i want to forgive and forget.
