Default Is my monitor dying?

I have a NEC Multisync FE1250+ Yes it's a 24" CRT that weighs 48lbs.

I have developed a problem. When it gets warmed up (especially during games) the middle edges will shrink inward and blink for like 1/2 second. It's 10 yrs old. Is it slowly dying?

That's your problem.

If that thing has lasted that long, you should count your blessings and start looking for a new monitor. None of my monitors have come even close to lasting that long.
