I filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and couldn't make my payments so it was dismissed. What are my options?

Question Details:

I was working and filed for Chapter 13. I was making payments to my trustee but then became unemployed and 4 months later I stopped making payments. My chapter 13 was dismissed and I was unemployed for 18 months. All the collection agencies have been calling me and things got worst during my unemployment. Now, as of 3 months ago, I am back to work but I am only making half of what I did when I worked and less then what my unemployment benefit was. Is there anyway I can re-file or re-start my Chapter 13 after all this time?
