Default Need some help here friends

This is my first post in this forum so far.. My name is Mohammad, 22 years old, year 4 medical student in Mansoura University, Egypt.
Working as a physician in America has always been a dream for me and my family. Since my first year in med college I started looking for information about the USMLE and preparing for the exams by reading question banks and watching Kaplan videos. Now here is my problem: in my third year in college I had some serious episodes of depression and other psychological issues that prevented me from passing the exams for 2 years. Now that I became much better , I've started thinking about the USMLE again but I am afraid that my chances with the matching and stuff would have become much worse because of the 2 years failure and my bad grades (in my college if you didn't pass from the first time you'll never get more than 65% in the next time no matter how good your answers were) also take in mind that I've become 2 years older than my colleagues.
So please tell me guys, do I still have a chance? Will what happened in my third year decrease my chances by any means? and if so , to what extent ?
I hope you reply soon .. This is very important to me guys. Thanks you in advance and sorry for my terrible English.
