Is my cactus dead?
I feel kind of silly even asking, but it doesn\'t seem to be 100% shriveled, I was wondering if it would come back or if I should just toss.

I see from the photo, that the soil is too moist. This has likely caused an infection, and it may be beyond repair at this point.
Cactus care requires a light mix made for cacti, that is fast draining. They like to be thoroughly dry between waterings in the future.

Thanks for the response! I had just watered it, so that is why the soil is wet, and its in a cacti soil (not sure how great those are, my other cacti seem okay?). It actually got like this after a prolonged drought (by me).
