Life is full of experiences and objects that are both a blessing and curse.  Is there a single word – adjective or noun – that indicates when something is a blessing and curse?  I've been searching reverse dictionaries and the internet with no luck.

Ambivalent may come close.

How about bittersweet? Or possibly muddled?

And if you just want a synonym, and don't restrict it to a single word: double-edged sword.
