Assunto:  The last two years decisively did...
 
Mensagem:  How can I say...

... mas de dois anos para cá.

a) For some time the situation had become nearly unbearable. Only in the last two years did it start to give us some relief.

b) Hard times had gotten the best of ourselves for nearly a decade. In the last two years, however, things started to change (for the better).

Espere por outras sugestões que, espero, deverão vir abundantemente. Dale's, I should note, appears a lot more relevant to the case in point. :-)
