J.O.Y. stands for Just Older Youth - it's for the "older" survivors. If you go to that forum there is a pinned post that explains what "older" is.
CSA is chidlhood sexual abuse
You got the other ones right.

I just want to point out that T/t can also stand for trigger. It's usually easy to figure out from the context which one it is :)
