About

Welcome! I’m the BaloneyMistress. I also answer to Michelle, Mama, or “HeyHaveYouSeenMyKeys”.

I’m a writer, social worker, and work-from-home project juggler. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with my husband, Banker Boy, my two kids, two cats, and a dog who thinks she’s a cat.

This blog chronicles how I cope (or not) with being the baloney in the middle of an unappetizing sandwich – a person with her own mental health challenges, stuck between a parent with dementia and a child with mental health and learning challenges. Some days I don’t cope well, that’s for sure. But I keep going. And I tell you about it.
