Difficulty distinguishing right and left


I am a recent college graduate and I have known about my aphantasia for a year or so now. My whole life I have had troubles distinguishing right and left. Whenever it comes up in conversation, people are shocked that I don’t know something as simple as right and left, because I’m not a dumb person. I have heard all the tricks for telling right from left but none of them work for me. After trying to help me learn, most people just suggest getting it tattooed on my hand haha! I manage just fine not knowing which is which. Recently, I was wondering if there was any relationship between aphantasia and not knowing right from left. Does anyone else with aphantasia struggle with this?
