Hmm.: First of all are you sure they are absence seizures? If so you may have jme or jae. Or another mixed epilepsy syndrome. Malls outfrow absnece at age 12 or 13. Occasionally women can continue to have them. Be mindful that some medication that work for partail seizures may precipitate absence seizures. Ask your neurologist.
